A Death In Tampa? Maybe You Can Crack The Case

If you had all of the tools that are available to a Crime Scene Investigator, do you think that you would be able to solve the case. Well, now you'll have the opportunity to find out if you have the "stuff" to be a part of a CSI unit. Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) will be the host of an immersive, interactive exhibit, where you will play the role of crime scene investigator, learning scientific principals and real investigative techniques.

Your task: try to solve one of three crime scene mysteries. You will have access to two state-of-the-art crime labs, input from the investigators of the television show and their forensic science counterparts. First you'll enter the "crime" scenes where you need to find, identify and record evidence. Next, you'll move to the "laboratories" to conduct scientific testing and then to the "autopsy" rooms for pathology analysis. Finally returning to the "office" where you will build and attempt to crack the case.

The exhibit is geared to adults and children, ages 12 and up and will be at MOSI from June 16 - September 6, 2010.
