Special Agent badge: Tech Detective
Do you have what it takes to be a Special Agent? Juniors and Cadettes will begin by practicing their observation skills and the art of forensic drawing by sketching a “suspect” described by a “key witness.” Next, participants explore the role of DNA in forensics — what it is, what it does, and how it helps solve crimes. They then get to perform an experiment to extract real DNA! Finally, they learn how to obtain and analyze fingerprints from a crime scene. *This class has been combined with the Junior Tech Detective badge program and will host both Cadette and Junior girls.
$30 per girl; $5 goes to Girl Scouts of Northern California.
This program covers three steps of the Special Agent badge and troop leaders will receive a resource guide with suggestions of how to complete the last two steps. Badge is not included.
Cadettes will receive a Tech Fun Patch.
Badge programs have a maximum capacity of 25 Scouts. If fewer than 10 girls have registered two weeks in advance, the program will be cancelled and The Tech will issue refunds.
