Red Comet’s “Forensic Science I: Secrets of the Dead” launched this summer along with several new high school electives that supplement Red Comet’s existing curriculum. In today’s society, crime and victimization are often top concerns of society members. From the nightly news to personal experiences with victimization, crime seems to obtain top ranks in all media reporting. Several top shows on television focus on crime and how detectives solve the mysteries of various types of crime – fingerprints, blood spatter, DNA analysis to name a few. The world of law enforcement is making use of the techniques and knowledge from the sciences to better understand the crimes that are committed and to catch those individuals responsible for the crimes. Forensic science applies scientific knowledge to the criminal justice system.
This course focuses on some of the techniques and practices used by forensic scientists during a crime scene investigation (CSI).
