It's like CSI meets Mystery Science Theater 3000!

Crime scene TV shows like CSI and Bones have helped spawn a fascination for all things forensic, but the science those shows depict is sometimes shockingly inaccurate. Find out what it's REALLY like to be a forensic scientist, and watch and learn as they pick apart some clips from those shows and debunk some of the "science" they portray.

We'll be joined by:
- Dan Alessio, Forensic Scientist, Firearms, Oregon State Police Crime Lab
- Gretchen Anderson, Forensic Scientist, Latent Prints, Oregon State Police Crime Lab
- Eric Tonsfeldt, Medicolegal Death Investigator, Clackamas County Medical Examiner’s Office
- Dr. Nici Vance, State Forensic Anthropologist, State Medical Examiner’s Office

$8.00 suggested cover at the door, online tickets will be available soon.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
