Forensic Science for High School is a high-interest, inquiry-rich integrated science curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and problem solving through the use of real-world forensic science methodologies.
Forensic science as a discipline is a natural vehicle for students to practice science as inquiry. For every piece of physical evidence brought in for analysis, the student must apply the scientific method of:
• forming a hypothesis
• collecting and classifying data
• testing the hypothesis
• looking for relationships
• advancing to a conclusion or opinion
