Forensic Science: Blood Evidence (Grades 7-8)
A hands-on workshop offered by the Center for Talent Development, Northwestern University, as part of the "Encounters at Home" series, where interactive demonstrations and activities allow students to observe some of the ways forensic scientists analyze blood during investigations.
Open to Grades 7-8; Eligibility Criteria Apply
This course is open to students by invitation of the Gifted India Network, only. This is a single-day CTD Encounters at Home course that meets live online from 07:30am - 11:00am Central Time on Saturday, 12/18/21 (7:00pm - 10:30pm India Standard Time).
How do forensic scientists use blood to solve crimes? How are math and physics applied to a crime scene investigation? Both in the laboratory as well as at a crime scene, blood analysis provides important evidence in forensic examination. In this hands-on workshop, interactive demonstrations and activities allow students to observe some of the ways forensic scientists analyze blood during investigations. At-home experimentation and measurement provide students with an insider's view of the job performed by bloodstain pattern analysts.
