Join us for a 7-week investigation of a mystery. During our first meeting, we’ll gather clues from a crime scene, plot them in our casebooks and start right in on solving the mystery, which changes each term.

Each week we’ll learn and practice different forensic science techniques, including fingerprinting, soil and fiber analysis, casting and ink chromatography. Our kids learn a bit of science in a fun way and can’t wait to come back for more.

Tired of having no clue what your kids do in all those clubs? We’re different. A day or two after every crime science class, your crime science instructor will email a note explaining what your forensic scientist learned in the previous session and what’s next. Sometimes we even include photos and videos!
