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.
