After a crime has been committed, the evidence left behind can point to the potential culprit. Fingerprints and blood stains are key pieces of evidence, helping to identify and convict a criminal. In this experiment, students will use hands-on scientific methods to solve a crime by dusting for fingerprints, and use fluorescent dust to search for and identify trace amounts of blood.
