Fingerprints and Forensics: Understanding the Basics of Crime Scene Investigation

Calling all armchair detectives! Do you enjoy watching mysteries or shows dedicated to crime scene investigation? If so, this class is for you! 

Join facilitator Lynne Dean, a retired Latent Fingerprint Examiner with the King County Sheriff’s Office, as she explores how crime scenes are processed for evidence. Students will learn how a forensic fingerprint laboratory works and discuss photographs from real crime scenes. You’ll also participate in hands-on exercises at home to give you a true “feel” for working with evidence and discover how to distinguish fact from fiction when it comes to your favorite CSI-style TV shows. Student participation is encouraged.  

Prerequisites: This class is for students 18+, as some of the content and photos is considered graphic. Students will need a 4 inch piece of clear plastic – for example, cut from a sheet protector – and a 4 or 5 inch piece of clear/Scotch Tape to participate in two hands-on exercises.

Comedy and Storytelling in These Strange Times

Everyone has jokes and stories inside themself, but finding ways to share these with others isn’t always easy, especially in the time of social distancing. This course will help you uncover these stories and get them out into the world - even if you can't get out at all. Sessions will emphasize “punching up,” as opposed to minimizing others, and include a variety of perspectives from seasoned comedians and speakers. The class will conclude with an online showcase during which students will deliver material in a fun and supportive environment. Beginners and experienced comedians and storytellers alike are welcome!

Toolbox Jewelry for Beginners

Making jewelry is a wonderful hands-on activity that results in wearable art! This course is designed to help students understand the basics of jewelry-making by using just the tools in a common household toolbox, items around the house, and copper wire. Students will learn how to create the components in rings, earrings, and necklaces, and walk away with multiple finished pieces and the knowledge to continue their jewelry-making journey! A supply list will be provided by the facilitator.
