the tube immediately ignited the creamer into an
impressive—and explosive—column of flame.
The demonstration was part of a workshop in
forensic engineering held by the CBU School of
Engineering in November. Actually, one of three
workshops in forensic engineering held in November.
The free program was expected to draw 50-75 stu-
dents from local and area high schools; when more
than 200 signed up, two more workshops were added
to accommodate the high level of interest.
The popularity of forensic television dramas, espe-
cially the hit CSI, was an obvious factor in both the
scheduling and the reception of the workshops. That
was the idea, said Dr. Randal Price, associate professor
of chemical engineering (and emcee at the work-
shops). “The idea is to get more kids interested in
engineering, period,” he said. “The U.S. isn’t sending
enough kids into the engineering and technology
fields. The economy as a whole could take a hit if we
can’t keep up.”
Besides demonstrating the explosive nature of dust,
Welch also covered other aspects of investigating the
causes and results of fires—such as how to recognize
signs of arson and the use of accelerants. (The torch
came out again to give examples of burn patterns and
to demonstrate how flammable liquids burn.) Another
topic covered in the workshop involved the investiga-
tion of traffic accidents, such as measuring skid marks
and crush factor. While discussing the science of bal-
