CSI: The Experience is a traveling exhibit narrated by characters of the hit TV series using interactive and hands-on exhibits to bring to life the scientific fundamentals and principles used in solving crimes. Children and adults alike can learn about the advanced technology and techniques used in situations on the show while using real equipment and viewing multi-media presentations and life-like exhibits.

“You will sample the following science fields and understand their role in cracking crimes: DNA identification, Toxicology, Forensic anthropology, Forensic entomology, Forensic pathology, Forensic art, Firearm and tool mark identification, Information technology, Latent prints, Blood splatter analysis.”

Use your new forensic skills acquired throughout the exhibit to solve the crime mysteries and answer the who, what, where, when, why and how.
