The Museum Files
In this multi-part series, the Tallahassee Museum presents The Museum Files—lectures in criminal justice, forensics, behavioral profiling, police investigation, myths, legends, and unsolved crimes.
Investigating Fires and Explosions
Fire and explosion investigations are unique to the forensic/investigative world in that the investigator has to start with the known (i.e., a fire or explosion has occurred), but develop the unknown from relatively little information. Captain Morgan will explore the use of a systematic approach to investigations related to development of the origin and cause of a fire or explosion. The approach used in these types of investigations is the scientific method.
Captain Karl Morgan, Project Manager at Division of Investigative and Forensic Services

Do you knit, crochet, or weave? Have you thought about making your own yarn? Most people believe that you need a spinning wheel to make yarn. The truth is that people were making yarn for 20,000 years before spinning wheels were invented, using a simple tool called a hand spindle. Spindles are inexpensive, portable, and a great way to make your own yarn. Students will learn the basics of spinning, while I “spin some yarns” about the history of this ancient art and be able to take home some wool and a spindle. Bring a lunch or snack with you!
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, December 11th at Noon.
