Leaving a mark on the St. Petersburg Science Festival

Kids at the St. Petersburg Science FestivalIt’s always a great day for science, but this Saturday was a perfect day to celebrate the sixth annual St. Petersburg Science Festival. NFSTC staff, Pinellas Park High School Criminal Justice Academy students and a University of South Florida St. Petersburg ROTC Cadet shared their knowledge with thousands of children on the USFSP campus.

In our expanded three-tent booth, kids were able to solve the puzzle of fingerprints; examine their own loop, whorl or arch; match the tire print; and check their cyber awareness. Once again, the highly coveted evidence bags were supplied by Lynn Peavey and were gone Louis the pug at the St. Petersburg Science Festival before we packed up.

Even our furry friends had a chance to check out the “CSI: Largo” tent.
