Forensic Mystery Workshop

skullFrancis Gregory Library is glad to be one of four libraries hosting educators from the National Museum of Health and Medicine (NMHM) for a workshop this summer. NMHM collects historical and anatomical objects and uses forensic science to unravel mysteries from the past. See how in these online exhibits - Resolved: Advanced in Forensic Identification of U.S. War Dead and Closing in on a Killer: Scientists Unlock Clues to the Spanish Influenza Virus. Using the tabs on the left side of the page, you can hear audio or view images to learn how forensic science helps solve mysteries. 

You can also learn about forensic science in our online databases. Gale Virtual Reference has a great article on the definition of forensic science. Or read this article on solving crimes with forensic science from the Science Reference Center

If you want to get hands on experience with forensic science, come to Francis Gregory Library on June 10 at 6 p.m. In an interactive workshop, teens will examine a real set of human bones to determine the identity of an unknown person.
We will begin examining at 6 p.m. in the teen space.
