CHILDREN can learn about the world of forensics these upcoming school holidays at Scitech.
The science education centre will give students an opportunity to learn how sketch artists get accurate drawings of suspects, chat with real-life forensic scientists who work in the field and discover the reality of computer, biology and wildlife forensics.
On the Forensic Stage, young science enthusiasts will love live story time as they help Detective Dog Nell and her keen sense of smell solve crimes with puppet detectives.
More hands-on activities will have them learning to create realistic fake wounds in The Tinkering Space, design their own slime and put swamp life under the microscope.
Then there is the chance to put all these new forensic skills to the test with a chance to solve a murder in the Whodunit? exhibit before it disappears in October.
Visit scitech.org.au for all the latest school holiday information or to buy tickets online.
