What is Forensic Science?

Forensic science is like being a detective, but instead of looking for clues like footprints or fingerprints, scientists look at tiny things we can't always see with our eyes. Imagine someone makes a sandwich but leaves crumbs everywhere. Later, someone else can figure out what kind of sandwich was made just by looking at those crumbs. Forensic scientists do something similar; they look at tiny clues left at crime scenes, like strands of hair, drops of blood, or small pieces of glass, to help solve mysteries and find out what really happened.

These scientists are super important because they help find out the truth and keep people safe. They use cool tools and technology like microscopes to see really small things and computers to match fingerprints. They can even use special chemicals to discover what substance is left at a scene. It’s like putting together a huge puzzle, but instead of finding missing puzzle pieces, they're finding clues that tell the story of what occurred. They help ensure that the right people are held responsible for their actions and help innocent people prove they didn’t do anything wrong.
