Do you have what it takes to be a Tech Detective? Juniors and Cadettes will begin by practicing the art of forensic drawing by sketching a “suspect” as described by a “key witness.” Next, they learn how to obtain and analyze fingerprints from a crime scene. Finally, participants explore the role of DNA in forensics — what it is, what it does and how it helps solve crimes. They then get to perform an experiment to extract real DNA!

*This is a combined badge class for Junior Detective & Cadette Special Agent.  Girls earn the respective badges (Badges NOT included).  Includes museum admission and a Tech Interactive fun patch!

 

Chaperone information: When you bring your Girl Scout to a badge program at The Tech Interactive, you can purchase yourself a ticket at the discounted rate of $14 (or $18  for the Robo-Designer programs, which includes an IMAX).

Ticket includes general admission, but it does not guarantee access to the classroom. In line with Girl Scout rules, only adults authorized by GSNorCal (troop leaders or troop parents) will be allowed in the classroom (space is limited to accommodate girls first). The Tech Interactive uses chaperone ratios required by GSNorCal.
