On Tuesday, Jan. 29, the Kate M. Smith Elementary School Science Exploration Club met and got an overview of police forensics from Corporal Jenkins of the Washington County Sheriff's Office and School Resource Officer for Washington County Schools.
Jenkins shared some tools used to process crime scenes and explained what modern forensics can do to help solve crimes. He also showed students how to make and collect fingerprints.
Students said they were "very impressed" and had a lot of questions for Officer Jenkins.
Students also got a short amount of time to continue working on their solar energy robots.
The club will meet again in this month, with a guest speaker scheduled from from Rayonier Forestry who will speak about science in the forestry industry.
