How do scientists solve mysteries? With forensics! Every crime scene contains forensic evidence that helps investigators discover exactly what happened. Forensics is the science of gathering and examining information about a past event, usually to solve a crime or legal problem.

In Forensics: Cool Women Who Investigate, children ages 9 through 12 learn about this fascinating field and meet three women who are succeeding in their chosen profession of forensics. Christine Gabig-Prebyl is a forensic scientist with Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Krishna Patel is a Forensic Supervisor with the Torrance Police Department, and Jessica Frances Lam is a researcher at England’s University of Leicester INTREPID Forensics Programme. Forensics combines high-interest content with links to online primary sources and essential questions that further expand kids’ knowledge and understanding of a topic made popular by TV shows, movies, and books. Compelling stories of real-life forensic scientists provide role models that readers can look toward for examples of success. Nomad Press books in the Girls in Science series supply a bridge between girls’ interests and their potential futures by investigating science careers and introducing women who have succeeded in science.
