Master Detective Toolkit

Product Details

Your Junior Gumshoe can track down some crooks with this briefcase full of investigator's tools! With the Master Detective Toolkit, they will learn about how detectives use forensic science to answer questions, gather evidence and solve crimes. They can experiment with the equipment and techniques used by real detectives to develop their own observation and problem-solving skills.

First, your pint-size Shamus will set up their detective's office and organize their tools. Then, they will do some exercises to hone their observation skills. Next, they will learn about securing a crime scene and gathering and documenting evidence, including fingerprints, footprints and tire tracks. After your future sleuth has gathered evidence, such as hair and fibers, counterfeit currency and soil samples, they will head back to the lab to learn how to analyze it. Finally, they can try their hand at deciphering codes, writing messages with invisible ink and communicating with secret symbols. As their investigation skills develop, they can use them to solve the practice cases.

The 32-page, full-color experiment book guides your in-house private eye's investigations with rich illustrations and step-by-step instructions. This is an inventive, engaging way to learn real science through role playing in imaginary adventures.

Age Recommendation: 8 - 99 years old
