(Toledo, OH) Some central-city Toledo kids will get hands-on lessons in forensic science today.
Ohio's attorney general will be on hand at the downtown public lubary today for a special event featuring the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation's Science School.
The back-to-school event will combine science and reading in a STEAM format to expose students from the Wayman Palmer YMCA to careers in forensic science and criminal investigation at a young age. The 9 to 13 year-olds will get to conduct hands-on experiments with help from Imagination Station presenters.
The kids will get to meet Ohio's top law enforcer, attorney general Mike DeWine, but they may be more drawn to a true-crime TV show host in attendance-- BGSU forensic science instructor, former Toledo police homicide detective, and star of Oxygen Media's hit show "Cold Justice," Tonya Rider.
