Turn your science classroom into a forensics lab!

  • Jun 12, 2014


It’s a safe bet that many of your middle and high-school students have grown-up watching at least one of TV’s CSI shows, drawn by a heady mix of thrills, cool heroes and cutting-edge science.

But not just science—applied science. Techniques as tactics. Chemistry that yields confessions. Trace evidence that uncovers truth.

Heavy, right? That’s why kids like it.

Recognizing this, the folks at truTV—one of your DIRECTV School Choice channels (ch. 246)—have partnered with the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and the National Science Teachers Association to bring you Forensics in the Classroom, a series of free, standards-based units that allow you and your students to put key scientific concepts to work solving cases.

Report your results and you might even win a $1,000 grant!

Check it out, and spread the word. Start planning today to open a case next fall. Visit Forensics in the Classroom.
