What's covered?

CSI 2017Something mysterious is happening on campus! An inventor on the brink of a scientific breakthrough needs your child’s help. The scientist has heard mysterious noises in the middle of the night and thinks their lab equipment has been sabotaged! Who is causing the chaos? We need your junior crime scene investigator to help solve the mystery! As a member of an investigative team, your child will search for clues and gather evidence. The forensic scientists-in-training will then analyze their evidence, interview the suspects to get more information, and conduct experiments in a Penn State laboratory to learn more about the inventor’s scientific research. Will all the clues points to the same person as the perpetrator? Your child, together with Penn State forensic scientists and their new friends, will be the one to find out!
