  • Who Stole My Snacks? (Special Screening)

    Who stole our snacks in the pantry? No one has an alibi: they are all suspects. With traces of evidence collected from the crime scene, we could deploy forensics techniques to catch the stealer. Follow our crime-solving journey, as you witness the laboratory work behind the case. You will learn the method to increase DNA samples using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Electrophoresis will also be used to help profile the DNA samples, with the help of a jelly-like substance agarose. The DNA samples will reveal the stealer in no time.
