As the students move through each module of this activity, they will be exposed to NGSS Life Science Disciplinary Core Ideas LS1 (Structures and Processes) and LS3 (Heredity) PS1 (Matter and its Interactions) as they perform a variety of techniques used by police officers, detectives, crime scene technicians, and forensic scientists. These exercises will allow students to acquire a deeper appreciation of the field of forensic science.

This kit has been aligned with all published National Standards.
