Hair, There, Everywhere: Forensic Hair Analysis

Back to All Programs
Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Luke 12:7)

Did you know that the average human sheds between 50–100 hairs a day? Have you ever wondered how human hair and animal fur are different? It is fascinating how God created structural differences between different kinds of hair. In this engaging, hands-on, microscopy workshop, you will examine human hair and camel, zorse, zonkey, dog, cat, and alpaca fur to determine the important variations in the forensic hair samples. The individual characteristics in human hair and the unique traits visible in animal fur point toward the all-powerful Creator God.

Join us as we examine the beauty and complexity of God’s creation through forensic hair analysis.
