Crime Scene Investigations
Forensic science is popular in the media, but the actual application of forensic techniques requires a great deal of knowledge. Students will sift fact from fiction as they examine evidence of various forensic situations. They will learn the basic principles of evidence collection and preservation, and they will discuss motive and alibi. The class investigations will include the analysis of fingerprints, hair, handwriting, and entomological samples, and we will also observe a demonstration of simulated blood typing.
