•  Intro to Forensics






    Ready to use STEM to solve a crime or stop a hacker!? 

    This program exposes middle school students (7th and 8th graders) to a simulated forensic investigation like those depicted in the CSI TV shows.  While learning how to analyze crime scene evidence, students will record observations at a mock crime scene and analyze fingerprints, hair samples, and a mystery chemical.  They will also play a game that allows them to deductively guess weak passwords, toward appreciating the importance of protecting the government’s evidence databases against hacking.  This STEM activity may encourage students to apply to PGCPS’ Law, Education & Public Service, or Homeland Security & Military Science academies.
