Hello! I'm a 7th grader and I'm freaking out because of the science fair.
I want to do my project on CSI work and how things go.
But my science teacher says I have to be more specific.
How should I know to be specific. I don't even know if the 'specific' is spelled the
right way. Well, she gave me this info. on blood splatter from science buddies,
but I don't want to do on that. I want to do on finger printings and How CSI
work and the crime scene
. Alas, we are already in to our 2 week!!! Please help me!

I am guessing you would like the one on fingerprinting:

If you are more interested in DNA fingerprinting,Science Buddies has some great projects for that too:, though I think they are much harder to do:

I think you could have fun with any of these, so there is no need to freak out. Just have fun with it!
