Summary
Presents new, tested experiments related to the intriguing field of forensic science. Forensic science is an applied science that uses scientific principles to meet specific goals. Students will be required to collect evidence, perform research, develop hypotheses, think analytically, conduct interviews, analyze data, employ deductive reasoning, draw conclusions, and finally share their results with others. The experiments are designed to promote interest in science in and out of the classroom, and to improve critical-thinking skills
