Penn State's Forensic Science Program Invites Arts Fest Visitors to Solve "the Mystery of the Purloined Art"
Starts: 12 July 2013 01:00 PM
Ends: 13 July 2013 11:00 AM
During the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, the Forensic Science Program of Penn State University invites visitors to join an interactive CSI experience to solve "the Mystery of the Purloined Art." Penn State forensic scientists will provide "hands-on'' training to help participants find, collect, and process evidence to identify the perpetrators who pilfered the precious art of Dr. Blake Ketchum, a forensic facial reconstructionist. In this self-paced workshop, visitors will learn the real techniques used to process a crime scene, analyze the evidence, and make a case for "whodunit." Visitors may work as a team with friends or family or they may compete against each other to see who solves the mystery first.
To participate, interested crime solvers may visit Spruce Cottage on the Penn State University Park campus on Friday, 12 July, anytime between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. or on Saturday, anytime between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Children and adults are welcome. Admission is $4.99 per "investigative unit," which can be comprised of family members, friends, or roommates. Proceeds benefit the Forensic Science Student Club to support student travel to professional conferences.
