Participants will also find an invisible fingerprint using advanced skills, and even solve a "crime" based on fingerprint identification. SEED Scientists will send participants home with multiple items so they can share the learning experience and fun with their families. Registration required. This program is funded by the Seekonk Cultural Council, a local agency funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Registration required.
