Going public with the story
Imagine entering a crime scene and being the one responsible for noticing and collecting every trace of evidence. The pressure is on: you know the analysis of your evidence must be scientifically sound to crack the case.
You’ve seen the hit television crime drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on CBS. Now, there’s a forensic science exhibit related to the TV show, as well as a Web-based learning adventure.
CSI: The Experience is a completely immersive exhibit that invites visitors to enter “crime” scenes where they identify and record evidence. It takes them inside “laboratories” for scientific testing and to “autopsy” rooms for pathology analysis. Then it returns them to the “office” to build their case, based on the scientific evidence. The exhibit brings to life real scientific principles and the most advanced scientific techniques used today by crime scene investigators and forensic scientists.
From DNA and firearms analysis to forensic anthropology and toxicology, visitors will be immersed in hands-on science in an exciting multi-media environment with dazzling special effects direct from the CSI TV series. Cast members from the TV show welcome guests into the exhibit from a large video monitor, lead them through the experience, and praise them for a job well done at the end. The exhibit is geared toward adults and youth age 12 and above.
