WonderWorks announces the addition of new interactive exhibit.

WonderWorks is thrilled to announce the May 22nd, 2015, opening of a brand new forensic science exhibit. The attraction provides educational entertainment for all ages, and its team is ecstatic to have added this exciting branch of science for guests to enjoy. Families, schools, and visitors passing through will be able to experience the real work of a forensic scientist in the following three areas: fingerprint identification, 3D Facial reconstruction, and facial recognition.

“This is by far our most exciting exhibit to date,” said Chief Operating Officer of WonderWorks, Janine Vaccarello. “We pride ourselves on ensuring that science education is a part of every exhibit we have. Forensic science is such a popular and interesting topic, we know our visiting families, schools, and locals will have the best time with this new interactive!”

Forensic science is a growing topic in film and television as well as all levels of education. The team at WonderWorks worked with professionals in the field to ensure an authentic and exciting learning experience for guests.

Dr. Dawnie Steadman, Director of the Forensic Anthropology Center at the University of Tennessee, spoke on her enthusiasm for the exhibit.

“The key to forensic science is practical experience and we are thrilled to have WonderWorks encouraging their guests to take an interest with this new exhibit,” Steadman said. “It will provide burgeoning forensic scientists of all ages the perfect opportunity to get hands-on experience to make the intricate aspects of forensic science more accessible.”

WonderWorks also worked with professionals from the National Center of Missing & Exploited Children, The National Museum of Crime & Punishment, 3DSystems, and FaceCheck during development. The exhibit will bring a fresh and exciting component to WonderWorks while continuing to achieve the attraction’s goal to educate and entertain students and families alike.
