Learn about forensic science and methods. Go hands-on with techniques like fingerprinting, collecting shoe prints, and more. Use the same tools the pros use to detect the presence of blood and identify theft suspects. Each box (retail value $50+) comes with gear that real investigators use along with activities designed to let you learn by doing.
Q: is this more appropriate for teens or adults?Asked by Jenn M., February 2020
The forensikit is made in mind for general audiences. We try not to include
dangerous or inappropriate content. And we try and make it fun although
admittedly there's only so much fun you can have with an evidence bag

I have other products form the folks at Crime Scene (The Missy Hammond Case) and LOVE them! I was surprised, and THRILLED, that there is now a monthly subscription! I am in forensic heaven! Thank you...
Locating blood at a crime scene is a critical aspect of determining what happened. With this box, learn how to find out right away whether a stain is blood or not, see how luminol works, and conduct your own tests.
Every surface offers its own challenge, and each surface requires a unique processing method such as magnetic powder.
Choosing the appropriate size and type of packaging is critical to preserving the evidence collected.
Invisible thief detection powder has many uses including helping identify someone who's been touching things they shouldn't.
Evidence photography captures the scene as it was when discovered and preserves evidence that cannot be collected or that changes over time like blood spatter.
Collecting fingerprint exemplars from witnesses and suspects is vital to identifying unknown prints at a crime scene.
Casting preserves footprints and tire tracks in 3-D so they can be identified and compared to suspect shoes or tires.
Crime scene sketches show where evidence is located in relationship to the overall scene, and documents details like distances between objects that a photograph doesn't capture.
