Teens Explore Forensic Science


Teens Explore Forensic Science 



Forensic scientist, Ted Schwartz turned the Studio Around the Corner into a forensics lab on Saturday, April 1. Over 40 middle and high school students were enlightened with a lecture of various aspects of forensic science. Following the talk the students produced and examined their own fingerprints, inspected hair samples in a microscope and studied transfer patterns. The program ended with a Q&A with parents and students.

“It is very important to get students interested in science.  Forensic science is one of those areas that is so interesting to some people.  They end up learning about science without even realizing that it is science,” explains Mr. Schwartz. “I was very impressed by the number of students who were willing to give up a portion of their Saturday to come to these presentations.”

Next month we will continue our science series with Fun Physics on May 6. Space is limited and this series is very popular. Sign up today to reserve your spot!

About The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition

The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining cultural arts within the Town of Southeast and its surrounding region. TOSCAC was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in August 2010 with the purpose, as detailed in the incorporation papers, “… to promote and raise funds for the development and effective management of affordable, accessible performance space that will provide citizens of the Town of Southeast opportunities to participate in and appreciate cultural arts, including lectures, theater, dance, film, music, visual arts, and inclusive community events.”

Our current focus is the renovation of the Southeast Old Town Hall, a historic landmark within the Village of Brewster and a perfect venue to serve as a cultural hub. The Old Town Hall has been described as a “Jewel in the Center of Brewster” and its renovation will help foster the revitalization of downtown Brewster.
