CSI Montreal

Although it is not listed on the NSTW web site, this weekend also marks the opening in Montreal of Autopsy of a Murder or en français Autopsie d'un meurtre at the Montréal Science Centre.

A murder has been committed. Sarah Melville, an ordinary young woman, is found dead in her apartment: she has been shot. Three suspects are identified...
... and so it begins! Created in collaboration with Christyne Brouillet, a well-know Québec author, the Montréal Science Centre worked with specialists from the Laboratoire des sciences judiciaries et de médecine légale du Québec, the Sûreté du Québec, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The company Forensic Technology also developed, in partnership with the Science Centre, an interactive ballistics game. Produced by the Montréal Science Centre, in collaboration with the Musée de la civilisation in Québec City and the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa

The popularity of TV programmes such as CSI has spawned a genuine interest that educators are trying to convert into people in seats at university. This exhibition, which runs through to March 28th next year is set to be a real winner!
