Disclosure - I received a product for review purposes from Ravensburger
When I was in high school, I thought I might want to be a forensic scientist. I thought DNA and genetics was fascinating and wanted to be like the people on the CSI shows. But I'm too much of a wuss and could never do it.
Even though I could never be a professional out in the field, now I can try out my skills with the Science X, CSI: Crime Scene Kit from Ravensburer.
With the Kit you can
- Analyze Evidence
- Isolate DNA
- Identify Fingerprints
- Split hair
- Analyze Tire Tracks
- Analyze Finger Prints
- Analyze Drop Shapes
- Take Impressions of a Footprint
- Make a Copy of a Key
- And More!
Kit Contains -1 Magnifying Glass, 1 Plastic Bottle, 1 Measuring Tape, 1 Pair of Tweezers 1 Pipette, 1 Pair of Safety Glasses, 1 Packet of Plaster, 5 Small Crime Scene Bags, 1 Piece of Filter Paper, 1 Funnel, 1 Roll of Dough, 1 Insect Card, 1 Picture with Clues, 1 Small Tube, 1 Small Tube Holder, 1 ID Badge, 5 Fingerprint Cards, 10 Crime Scene Cards
It all seems a little overwhelming. But in addition to everything above, the kit also comes with a (heavily illustrated) instruction manual with info about the tasks from German forensic biologist Dr. Mark Benecke. The tasks are designed to be easy and perfect for kids.
To Buy - The CSI: Crime Scene Kit is perfect for any budding scientist, CSI fans, or anyone interested in how the world works. It has a SRP of $34.99, and is recommended for kids ages 8 to 13. But here's a little tip, I checked Amazon today and it was on sale for $24.85
