Description

Dust Away Crime: The Truth about Fingerprints
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Ages 10-13, chaperone required

For over a century, fingerprints have been used in criminal investigations. Because an individual’s fingerprints are unique, they can be used to link a suspect to a crime. Join us to learn about the many ways criminologists use fingerprints and try some modern techniques for fingerprint collection and analysis.

In this activity you will:

  • analyze your own unique fingerprints;
  • learn how to dust for prints;
  • attempt to match “suspect” prints to “evidence.”
