A robbery at gunpoint. A body. One witness. Not enough evidence. A million questions. And you're the detective.
The Maryland Science Center's newest exhibit, "Whodunit? The Science of Solving Crimes," begins Saturday and puts the magnifying glass in your hands and lets you play detective at a fabricated crime scene.
The interactive exhibit lets you use scientific methods to solve the crime, including DNA profiling, fingerprinting, firearm identification, forensic anthropology, pathology and entomology. You collect the evidence. You analyze the data. You crack the case.
The exhibit begins Saturday and runs until Sept. 1 at the Maryland Science Center, 601 Light St. The Science Center will present other "Whodunit?" events, including "A Whodunit? Weekend," "DNA Detective: Fingerprints and Gene Probes" and "Mystery Day with the Enoch Pratt Library."
Admission is $9 for adults; $7 for children, military personnel and seniors. Call 410-685-5225.
