Crime scene investigation relies on the quality of the evidence collected. In this session you will explore and analyze certain types of trace evidence through microscopy, observation, and comparison. Trace evidence is evidence “left behind,” such as fingerprints, footprints, or hair and fibers. You will use microscopes to observe your own hair structure and analyze hair and fiber “evidence” to see if you can find matches.
