Chemistry- Biology

Program presentation: Students will work as investigators in forensic laboratories.
They will investigate mysterious murder cases using a combination of both forensic analytic technics and forensic tools such as fiber and density analysis, chemical analysis and identification of chemical substances. They will collect evidence and they will solve the cases.
Teacher will prepare the crime scene and guide students into solving the case. The purpose for students is to learn how to collaborate and how to follow a specific scientific method. They should use modern forensic technics, and keep the safety rules in order to solve the case and to not contaminate the evidence.

Program goal:

Detective CSI educational program aims to help the students develop skills such as observeness and inventiveness. They get familiar with modern analytic technics and become detectives themselves in order to solve the cases. They learn how to collect evidence without contaminating them and how to process them in order to get results. They get more confident and they develop team spirit.
