The Museum of Nature & Science hosts “Teen Science Café: Forensic Science” on Thursday, September 20, at 5:30pm. Led by Las Cruces Police Department’s identification technician Geronimo Barreras, participants will experiment with finger print collection and blood and body fluid detection. This event is free and open to students in 6th-12th grade.
“Teen Science Café” is a free, fun way for teens to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Stimulating conversations with scientists, engineers, and inventors take place in an informal and relaxed setting. Plus, there’s free food!
The program is run by teens for teens at the Las Cruces Museum of Nature & Science. It was inspired by the adult Science Café programs that have become popular throughout the world. All teens are welcome at any Café, and we are always looking for energetic high school students to be Teen Leaders to help guide and organize the Café meetings.
Admission to the Museum of Nature & Science is free. The museum is located at 411 North Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm. and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at: http://las-cruces.org/museums or call (575) 522-3120.
