Trent University’s renowned Forensic Science program and new crime scene house have caught the attention of Discovery Channel’s critically-acclaimed science show, Daily Planet.

The internationally-acclaimed television program will be on Trent campus this Wednesday, April 1 and Thursday, April 2 taping five instalments of their popular “Science and the City” segment featuring experiments developed collaboratively with faculty and students from Trent’s Forensic Science program. Each experiment is designed to explain the scientific principles behind various procedures and processes used in forensics in a fun and interactive way. Daily Planet will also be taping a segment for their Green Week special showing Trent students how to make power-free iPod speakers.

The segments filmed at Trent are expected to be broadcast later in the spring. Daily Planet is Discovery Channel Canada's flagship daily science magazine show about the science of everyday life.
