Firearms are manufactured with tools which impart characteristics onto the gun. These manufactured characteristics are transferred to the ammunition components that come into contact with the gun when it’s fired. In this class participants will learn how to measure and compare the characteristics on a fired bullet to determine the type(s) of guns that could have been responsible for shooting it and how to identify a bullet back to a particular firearm.
The afternoon session for middle school students begins at 1pm and ends at 3pm.
Classes can be cancelled with a full refund two weeks prior to the start of each class.
**The Forensic Science Saturdays classes incorporate case studies and mock crime scenes into the curricula to illustrate practical applications of what is learned in class. These case studies and mock crime scenes are often of a violent nature. Parental discretion is advised.**
