Forensics 161

Forensics is the study of scientific evidence that may be analyzed from a crime scene or accident. The process of making observations and analyzing data left behind at the scene of a crime/accident will be the focus of this laboratory course. The course will involve a significant number of lab experiences and a variety of activities where students will collect and analyze evidence and make inferences based on physical, chemical and biological evidence. In addition to high school credit, three hours of tuition-free college level science credit may also be obtained by juniors/seniors upon successful completion of this course. (An application fee of $25 is required if students elect to receive college credit.) This course fulfills the science graduation requirement.
