Evidence talks.

Imagine entering a crime scene and being the one responsible for noticing and collecting every trace of evidence. The pressure's on: your analysis of the evidence must be scientifically sound to crack the case. You've seen the hit television crime drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Now you can play the role of crime scene investigator, learning scientific principles and real investigative techniques as you try to solve a crime scene mystery. With input from investigators from the television show, along with their real-life forensic science counterparts, you will formulate a hypothesis, validate your findings based on scientific evidence, and try to crack the case!

The National Science Foundation funded the exhibit and an upcoming educational Web site through the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
