Older Girls: November 2008 Archives

csi.jpgHi!  I'm Lily from Cadette Troop 8369.  I attended the Kappa Delta Badge Day.  My troop signed up for "Uncovering the Evidence" which was about techniques used to solve crimes. 

There was a professional forensic specialist who talked to us about all the different ways crimes are solved, and how scientists help each other to solve them.  Her talk was very interesting and she told great stories about the dumb stuff criminals do.  I guess we are lucky they aren't too bright!  She made a career in forensics sound really cool.

We tried out some forensic techniques, like taking fingerprints and estimating the height of a victim from the length of some of their bones.  My favorite was when we extracted DNA from strawberries! 

The Kappa Delta sorority sisters were great.  They were really friendly and they helped us work through the techniques.  If you have a chance to do something with them this year, sign up!
