A key element of any science class is the
effective use of quality labs which allow students to put prior learned
concepts into practical use. These activities are most significant
when labs are examples of real world applications. Often labs of
this type are either to expensive or dangerous for teens to conduct.
In forensic science, a topic most people find riveting, real world labs
can be carried out on a regular basis safely and economically.
