Turn students into detectives as they investigate DNA, blood and fingerprint evidence
Students develop a thorough understanding of concepts such as Locard’s Principle, genetic principles of inheritance, and chromatography. They acquire skills through activities such as making an impression cast, analyzing altered documents, and modeling a DNA profile. In each unit of study (lab), students perform both skill and case activities.
The module culminates in a comprehensive culminating activity called The Case of the Silent Sentinel.
