Development and Location
The exhibit was developed for the Science Museum Exhibit Collaborative by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in partnership with CBS Consumer Products and the National Science Foundation, which provided $2.4 million in funding for both the exhibit and a CSI "Web Adventure" targeted to underserved youth. Approved by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, the exhibit was developed and designed by numerous partners.
This is not the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's first venture into the world of forensic science. The Museum also developed the exhibit, Whodunit? The Science of Solving Crime in 1993 for the Science Museum Exhibit Collaborative and it has been touring science centers since. Advances in DNA science and information technology have dramatically changed the field of forensic science, leading to the new exhibit on the topic.
CSI: The Experience debuted at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry in May 2007 and opened in the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's new facility in November 2009. CSI: The Experience is currently touring museums and science centers across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Starting October 1, 2011, it will be at Discovery Times Square in New York City.

Famous quotes containing the word development:
“They [women] can use their abilities to support each other, even as they develop more effective and appropriate ways of dealing with power.... Women do not need to diminish other women ... [they] need the power to advance their own development, but they do not need the power to limit the development of others.”
—Jean Baker Miller (20th century)
