In this class we will explore the fascinating world of forensic science and how it is used to solve criminal cases by criminal justice professionals.
We will walk through the process of solving crimes including: Forensic science and the law, types of evidence, crime scene analysis, fingerprinting, hair, fibers, drugs, toxicology, trace evidence, soil and glass, blood, DNA, entomology, human remains, firearms, tool mark impressions, as well as handwriting analysis.
We will also be conducting experiments to gain hands on knowledge and a better understanding of the forensic process and how it is used to solve criminal cases.
It is important that your students are very diligent in this class. They will be learning to be good note takers, have good math and science skills, as well as good logic and deductive reasoning skills, which is why I’m recommending this class for 10th–12th graders or advanced 8th–9th graders. I will leave the decision on whether your child is capable of completing this course to you and your extensive knowledge of your child and their abilities.
