VITERBO UNIVERSITY TO HOST FORENSIC SCIENCE COMPETITION

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Viterbo University will host an “Exploring Science Through Forensics” competition in the D.B. and Marge Reinhart Center for Ethics, Science, and Technology Thursday, Jan. 11 from 8 a.m.–5 p.m.

Seventy-three local high school students are registered to participate in the event, which will involve students analyzing a variety of evidence to solve a cold case. Activities include examining bone structure and fibers, DNA analysis, blood typing, and chemical analysis.

“The television show Crime Scene Investigation has led to a greatly increased popularity in the field of forensics,” said Glena Temple, Viterbo professor of biology, who will be available to speak with members of the media throughout the day. “And at the cornerstone of this field is science.”
