The workshop and badge program taught girls from the 4th and 5th grades forensic science techniques and examination of evidence as they solved the crime scene. Activity stations were used to teach blood, hair and fiber analysis and chromatography. The program concluded with a presentation on dichotomous skull analysis and solving the mystery.
Through programs like the Girl Scout Crime Scene Mystery, women in engineering and technology show girls that math and science is fun and challenging. "This was the second time we presented this program," said Terry Hart, COO LAN Systems. ( http://www.lansystems.com ) "It was so successful and received such great reviews that we are looking to expand the activities."
