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
