1 Course Information: Hoover City Schools Secondary Curriculum Science, Course Title: Forensic Science Grade Level: 2 Course Description: Making science relevant and pertinent to the interests and goals of the student is a desirable but often elusive goal. Forensic science is intended to enhance a student s interest in science by incorporating forensic knowledge into lab experiments involving mysteries. In this new century, the science of D profiling has altered the complexion of criminal investigation. D collected from saliva on a cup or from dandruff or sweat on a hat exemplifies the emergence of nontraditional forms of evidence collection at crime scenes. Students will focus the common items of physical evidence found at crime scenes, as well as updated techniques for the proper collection and preservation of evidence at crime scenes. Forensic Science course explains the techniques, skills, and limitations of the modern crime laboratory to students who have no background in the forensic sciences. Students will improve their ability to give clear concise answers to questions. They will learn useful problem solving and critical and thinking skills by applying science concepts to solving real world problems. Students will expand their critical and logical thinking about relationships between real science and explanations.
