  • Crime Solvers (Grades 6-8) Humanities/Science
    Learn how to be a crime solver by exploring the world of the forensic scientist. Before studying a crime scene you must practice the skills needed in analyzing evidence. You learn about forensic science, which is the study of objects that relate to a crime. The objects are evidence and analyzing the evidence is what forensic scientists do. They observe, classify, compare, use numbers, measure, predict, interpret data and draw inferences. Scientists are what they are and crimes are what they solve.
