Description:

In this crime science activity (on page 2 of the PDF), learners will explore the uniqueness of fingerprints. The will learn components of fingerprints as well as why fingerprints are left behind. This activity is included as part of one of COSI's Family Science Quests, but can easily be done as a stand-alone. This activity also points out that what we see on TV isn't always accurate, as the learners will find out just how hard it is to leave a good, clean fingerprint.
