Food Analysis Mystery - Forensic Laboratory Kit
Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Teach chemical test procedures for common foods—Vitamin C, starches, reducing sugars, fats and proteins—in the context of a murder mystery! Students start by performing the chemical tests to establish the “standards” for positive identification, so critical to forensic science. Once the standards are established, the stomach contents of the victims are tested for the presence of the foods. When the test results are recorded, the data is examined in an attempt to solve the mystery. The kit includes the chemicals, student activities, and teacher information.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
