Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forensics For Kids (4th-8th grade) I teach Criminal Justice courses at the university level and we were looking for a way to boost interest in the older kids for more academic classes. So, we decided to offer a Forensics for Kids class at our homeschool cooperative and this kit was the perfect fit! The lessons lend themselves well to being taught one area per week. The students "interviewed" two suspects each week and everyone at the homeschool cooperative had fun. We will offer this class again in the fall and we had enough materials left over that we don't need to buy another kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good. I love this kit. It allows the kids to review a number of forensic techniques relatively quickly. It also allows me to easily modify the instructions for my own lab setup. I change the the fingerprint portion to allow each group to look at prints rather than just set up a station. Two recommendations: I wish Carolina would change it a bit to allow for alternate killers. The way it is set up, the tire tracks only allow for maloy to be the killer. I can change the prints etc... To lead to other people. But the tracks mean only maloy can be the killer. Why? I do this lab with multiple classes and once one class solves it, they all know the answer. Also, the answers are all online. Second, I wish Carolina would sell a 'refill' kit. I only need to get new blood and maggots occasionally. I don't need new magnifiers, forceps etc.... Each time I order this. I have enough tape to make a mummy by now! All in all, I love this and so do my students.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a a great kit but not a bad kit. The biggest problem I had with the tape was that both I and the students struggled with the tape for the fingerprint portion.
