There has been a robbery at Brainiac HQ! Put your personal Brainiac Detective Badge on and help the Brainiacs solve the crime and use the power of forensic science to try finding who is guilty. This interactive 60-minute hands-on workshop led by the Brainiacs provides your young detectives, in their family groups with an opportunity to use real forensic techniques to discover clues and help solve a mystery.

Learn about the different types of fingerprints and how to extract them from crime scenes. The Trainee Detectives will also try to analyse the ink used to write the ransom note and a footprint found at the crime scene to find who committed the crime. Come help us solve this mystery and become an official member of the Brainiac Academy!
