Solve This! Forensics: Super Science and Curious Capers for the Daring Detective in You
I love this book! It sets up different scenarios in which a crime has been committed. The reader is presented with the evidence and must use forensic science to find the culprit. The cool thing about this book is that it explains different forensic science techniques, both how they are used and the science behind why they work.
One example is how fingerprinting works. The dust used to show the fingerprints is made of aluminum, which carries a positive charge. So, the aluminum dust is attracted to the negative charge in human skin and sweat and “sticks” to it!||It’s interesting to learn about the evidence in the cases, and how a real scientist would analyze that evidence. I love how this book walks the reader through each step to analyze each piece of evidence. Then, the reader gets to guess the culprit based on all the analyzed evidence.
I think other people would love this book because it’s a mix of educational information as well as fun to solve the crimes! This book is fun, interesting, and informative. All my fellow sleuths should definitely read it!
