Crime Scene Investigation - the study of Forensic Science
     
    
A crime has been committed!  As junior forensic scientists, we will work together in investigative teams to study evidence found at the crime scene.  We will analyze evidence in our very own crime lab and build a case against one of our 10 suspects.  Investigations will include analysis of Fingerprints, Shoeprints, Fiber, Powder Residue, Chemical Residue, Tool Marks, Hair, Handwriting, Ink (chromatography), Spectral Analysis (Toxicology), DNA, and anything else we might find. Students will need to develop an ongoing investigative plan based on their findings. As students build a case against the suspect they will request a search warrant for further evidence.  Search warrants will only be granted if valid scientific data is presented ... and we hear the judge is a tough nut to crack!
