PRESCHOOL FORENSICS – Lake Superior State University physical sciences professor Steve Johnson shows kids how to lift latent fingerprints during a visit to the Little Lakers Kinder College at LSSU on Feb. 13 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. The facility, administered by the Eastern Upper Peninsula Learning Center, offers primarily LSSU students and staff preschool services, and serves as a learning laboratory for LSSU education and social services students. Little Lakers host an eclectic range of visitors each month, from police and firefighters to Laker Hockey players and coaches. From left are Alice Bennett-McMyne, Lorelei Kachur, Kaiya Bouschor, and Dr. Johnson's son, Finley. Run a web search on LSSU Kinder College to read more about the child care center. A search on LSSU forensic chemistry yields more about Johnson's area of study at Lake State. (LSSU/John Shibley)
