Case of the missing cookie!

March 27, 2023

Fifth-graders at Mills Pond Elementary School are on the case!

With help from Mad Science of Long Island, they’re using detective science to solve a crime!

On Monday, Shannon Sass from Mad Science of Long Island visited fifth grade classes and gave our students an introduction a detective science introduction to forensics.

The students "solved a crime" using real science of crime fingerprint analysis, eyewitness accounts and more.

Eventually, the students figured out that Miss Squires was responsible for the missing cookie recipe!
