    Forensic Entomology

    Sunday, August 17: Noon – 3pm

    Learn how some of the most notorious crimes are solved by the smallest clues – botanical evidence and invertebrates. Using microscopes, magnifying glasses, tweezers and specimen collection bags, we can look for clues to a variety of “crimes”. Various crimes scenes are provided and participants can solve the crime by looking for clues in nature. Larva, pollen and even bird nests can help us solve these crimes.
