Grade 9-College. Students assume the role of forensic scientists to solve a fictional crime by integrating core concepts in chemistry. Students conduct ink chromatography, along with gunpowder analysis. Using deductive reasoning and scientific methodology, students process evidence from the crime scene and integrate concepts, such as data analysis and scientific writing, to help build a compelling case.
Grade 9-College. Students stay engaged throughout this investigation as they conduct ink chromatography, along with gunpowder analysis, to solve a crime. Crooks thought they'd pulled off the perfect crime, emptying the local bank's vault and apparently floating away down the river with the looted gold bricks. But they didn’t count on a crack team of forensic investigators following hot on their trail. Your students become that team, jumping into the role of forensic scientists working to help "police" solve the fictional crime. Using deductive reasoning and scientific methodology, students process evidence from the crime scene and integrate concepts--such as data analysis and scientific writing--to help build a compelling case.

The Carolina Beyond the Tape™ kit series offers a fresh take on forensics for biology, chemistry, and physics
Immerse your classroom in a fictitious case as your students play the role of forensic lab technicians and attempt to piece together the evidence and help police solve the crime. Each kit is designed with engaging activities that place students in cases with alluring stories, crime scene reports, and realistic evidence-handling techniques. You’ll pique students’ interest in science while building their teamwork, deductive reasoning, and writing skills. Most important, the kit activities help you meet national standards while seamlessly integrating forensic science into your biology, chemistry, or physics curriculum. If you want to take an investigation to the next level, choose the interdisciplinary kit, which combines all 3 disciplines into 1 comprehensive forensic investigation. Incorporating forensics into your classroom has never been easier, so get ready to take your class beyond the tape.
