Forensics: Students use black lightning powder to dust for latent (invisible) fingerprints throughout the school! They will then bring them back to class and analyze them for pattern, minutiae patterns, and ridge counts - just as real forensic scientists use to collect and analyze fingerprint evidence from crime scenes.
