Have you ever wanted to know how to solve a crime? You will learn from a real CSI Investigator how crime scene investigators solve the most mysterious crimes. Learn how to photograph crime scenes, search for fingerprints, evaluate bloodstain patterns (using simulated blood), and document, collect, and preserve different types of evidence. This is the most intriguing way to learn scientific principles from the realms of biology, chemistry and physics. Come and join us as we try to figure out who-dun-it!

Forensic Science focuses on the skills and concepts behind crime scene investigation. Whether you desire to be crime scene investigator, forensic pathologist, or some other medical scientist, this course will help you hone your investigative skills and review a wide range of science concepts. You will review physics, chemistry, anatomy, cell biology, environmental science and computer science in the process of learning about forensic science. You will engage in lectures, labs, case studies, on-line activities, and professional visits as part of this course. This course should help you see how science is used to answer questions rather than just learning science concepts.

In this physical science STEAM course, students will get their hands dirty as they use science to discover mysteries about the earth’s past. They will do hands-on experiments to learn about plate tectonics and the properties and characteristics of minerals, practice professional archaeological techniques for safely unearthing artifacts, and even perform their own "dinosaur dig" with real fossils that are millions of years old! And best of all, if you find it, you keep it!
