CSI Family DayPrograms
Aspiring CSIs Invited to an Afternoon
of Modern-Day Crime Solving
March 9, 2014
Noon – 5 p.m.
Have you ever wanted to examine a crime scene, gather and study evidence like fingerprints and eyewitness testimony, and crack the case? Now’s your chance! The eighth annual CSI Family Day at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, set for Sunday, March 9, 2014, will give aspiring crime scene investigators a chance to learn modern investigative techniques for solving crime. Visitors will investigate a mock crime scene, receive a police report about what happened, and perform forensic analysis at evidence stations.
CSI Family Day will be offered from noon until 5 p.m. on the Museum’s seventh floor. The event is suitable for children eight years and older, their parents and anyone interested in crime scene investigation and analysis. The first 500 children can have their fingerprints taken for ID purposes. The program is $5 when combined with Museum admission ($16 adults, $14 seniors, and $13 youths). Groups of 20 or more when booked in advance are $10 per youth, $15 per adult (includes Museum admission).
The program is a partnership with the Dallas Police Department, the University of North Texas Forensic Science Program, and UNT’s Forensic Science Club. The Forensic Science Club's mission is to enable students in the UNT Forensic Science Certification Program to learn about the forensic science field, establish a presence in the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS), and form student and professional networks dedicated to the study of forensic science. Students enrolled in the program will be on hand to teach others the skills and knowledge they have learned in classes and labs.
Order tickets online now as space is limited. You must also select Museum admission at the entry time of your choosing to attend CSI Family Day.
