Data gathered from well-worn shoes will form part of a new research project in Forensic Science at this year’s Annual Science Fair in IT Sligo.
The Fair is a popular family event, and takes place this Sunday, November 13th, from 12-5pm.
It features an array of science-related performances and interactive displays.
This year, visitors young and old will have an opportunity to help staff from the Institute’s School of Science collect data for a research project in forensic science.
Bring along your favourite well-worn shoes and get them examined by professional staff to see if they can find traces of blood on them. The research will examine how often a forensic scientist could expect to find blood traces on footwear.
All data collected will remain anonymous.
