Last day to work with scientist in NY…

Caitlyn Taylor and Mason Wonka, Detective Science Winners

I am sorry that i did not tell you about all the things we did Wednesday,April  21. So here is what we did.

For the first part of the morning and some of the afternoon we were with Don Siegel. He is very kind and interesting. Did you know that he made a cookbook? It is very cool. First we went to the field at the 9 mile creek. We took some samples in 2 different places. We were trying to find out what and if the creek was being contaminated by salt. Oh, by the way, the nine mile creek is actually nine miles!! :) Anyway, so we did that and then went to the lab to do some more test with Don and a man named Mario. It was fun… After that we went and got lunch. There lunches are very good at the college, especially the smoothies!!

Finally, after do all those things, we met a lady name Anita. It was fun! We learned things about blood spatter and fingerprints. It was exciting to use the kit for DNA. It was like the kind of kit you see on CSI shows. We also did some activities with DNA and FAKE blood.

SO, as you can seethat being in New YOrk was a lot of fun and also gave us a great learning background on things we never thought we would be able to see, feel, or be in the same room with in ouife time. I am urging kids to enter this contest every year depending on the school grade range. Thank you!!
