Solve the Murder Mystery
Scouts will have the opportunity to solve an interactive murder mystery. They will visit a simulated crime scene: a dead body inside a tent in the woods, a gunshot wound, a fingerprint, and a footwear impression. No eyewitnesses. No problem! In this exhibit, Scouts will learn forensic science through interactive activities and analysis of proxy evidence. They will be given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills to identify a possible suspect (who just might be one of the staffers!).
- Alternate Light Source
- Bloodstain Pattern Analysis
- Digital Evidence
- Firearm Identification
- Footwear Impression Evidence
Who did it?
WV outdoor learning lab
Explore the Environment.
Do you have what it takes?
Scouts will pick up an activity book and complete a series of hands-on outdoor activities. Using observational skills and modern technology they will collect and analyze data just like a real scientist. Scouts will learn about the environmental sciences and use critical thinking to complete the activities.
Adventure doesn't wait around.
