To aid your investigation, you will be given CSI cards on a clipboard. use the card to record information. At the different stations, you will analyze bullets, hairs and fibers, seeds and pollen, dental records, DNA, cell-phone messages, fingerprints, tire impressions, toxicology breakdowns, bugs, blood splatters and medical examiner reports. Wow! You will be just like a CSI detective!
