Forensic Science Program

We just finished two sessions of a great program presented by Sherry Brown, who heads the Forensic Science and Criminalistics Department at York College. We've had Sherry in before and she's always a lot of fun. She has cool stories from her days of working with the New Jersey State Police on cases. And we always learn a lot about fingerprints, handwriting analysis, and evidence handling, and try our hands at chromatography. She always counts as my annual gross and disgusting program, with some of her stories from the field, but she also gets extra gross points for the mummified human arm that she brings along with her. This year she also had an embalmed human heart. Very cool! Pics below.
