The fascinating world of forensics

We’ve all seen how it works in a crime movie — a crime happens, and the only witness has to describe the perpetrator to a police sketch artist. But surely sketching doesn’t really happen any more in this digital age?

It does and these school holidays SciTech is running their Forensics Field Day, where you can hear from a real FBI trained sketch artist.

Science educator Owen Merriman joined Jeziel on Drive to chat all about the upcoming event. Owen even ran Jeziel through some of the basics of forensics, from the basic background of police sketching, to the cutting edge modern day DNA techniques.
