Forensic Sci: Crime Scene Investigation and
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a crime scene investigator like those on
popular shows? In our forensic science class, students get hands-on experience with a variety
of forensic science techniques, like lifting prints from surfaces, making castings of footprints,
analyzing blood spatter, and more!
Class discussions include crime scene analysis, case studies of crime scenes, proper investigation
techniques, and the history of forensic science. We have had lively discussions about facts
and fallacies revolving around major cases in the media and on TV. We study and analyze
the factors of science in prosecution. The course culminates with a class investigation of
mock crime scenes – collecting evidence, lifting prints, photographing and sketching the
scene, and interviewing suspects to solve the crime. In the past other students have served as
criminals, victims, judge and jury.
