Product Details

Your students will become great detectives as they test their forensic science skills while investigating and solving a simulated crime! Students conduct four types of forensic tests to solve the case of Bobby Bedhead’s missing prize-winning pooch, Priscilla. Tests conducted include:
• Blood Analysis—Students determine the ABO blood types of five different suspects.
• Chromatographic Ink Analysis—Students perform chromatography techniques of suspected ink used at the crime.
• Handwriting Analysis—Students examine and identify variations in five handwriting samples and match them to a document left at the crime scene.
• Fingerprint Analysis—Students learn the uniqueness of fingerprints and how they may be used to “crack the case.”

Students use all of their results to build a case and convict the culprit!

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
