A breakthrough forensic science lab activity based on the actual details of a double murder that took place on the Smith Farm in Old Fields, NY in 1842.

  • Hair Analysis
  • Blood Typing
  • Fingerprint Analysis
  • DNA
  • Shoe Impressions
  • Pathology
  • Blood Spatter
This is the most engaging way for middle and high school students to meet federal and state science standards, particularly the standards regarding of Evidence-Based Inquiry.
Murder at Old Fields is unique in that it features both a real-world kit, for hands-on activities in the lab, and a virtual experience, where students can tour the virtual crime scene online, find a evidence and analyze this evidence in the online lab.

The real-world kit and the virtual lab activity combine to make a powerful and flexible “blended” activity featuring the best of both school lab activities and online activities. The kit and the virtual activity can be used in combination or as separate stand-alone activities.

Developed in collaboration with Bullfrog Communications, Murder At Old Fields is the most realistic, interactive forensic investigation available.

The Real World Kit comes in a sturdy plastic lock-able case on wheels and includes enough materials for an entire class, as well as a comprehensive Teacher's Guide and a Student Copymaster. Available refill kits make it easy and affordable to use the kit again from class to class.

1. Refill Kit A includes the items that will be needed to be replaced for each new class investigation (such as the crime scene evidence)
2. Refill Kit B includes the items that will be needed for long term maintenance of the kit (such as microscope slides)
Note: If when ordering the real world kit from the links below, if you see a message that reads "Temporarily Out of Stock" you can still order the kit, but there may be a short delay in the fulfillment or the order.

Worth it! - Another excellent comprehensive kit. Murder at Old Fields is interesting and engaging (love the online simulation). The kit is pricey, but worth the cost. This kit could be used for a forensic class or unit, or as a culminating experience. Another kit great for CSI camps. One minor note: in the pathology section, students may need support for skeletal bone features (unless they've had anatomy
