Students will be able to discuss the technologies associated with forensic science and determining biological profile on a skeleton, analyze a 911 phone call and video, and reach their own opinion of the Casey Anthony trial and forensic anthropology, and evaluate a crime scene and use critical and logical thinking to argue their group's scientific claim about the crime being called in and show the importance of scientific argumentation in science. This activity integrates skills learned in anatomy with forensic science concepts relating to the biological profile of human skeletons and can be addressed to assessing modern human age, sex, ancestry, and stature to help forensic anthropologists identify remains. Students will leave with more knowledge on the field, their body, and on certain recent cases that have been popular in the media.

This is an activity based on a program I read about in the Smithsonian Magazine in which police officer learned to be better observers through art. I also like to use "the Puddle," by M.C. Escher. It is excellent for making inferences and then asking for supporting evidence.

Welcome to Chemistry Applications: Pharmacology, Biotechnology and Forensics, a high school curriculum. Included in this curriculum are many lesson plans that are aligned with the North Carolina Chemistry and Biology Standards, in addition to the National Science Standard. Students will learn to be critically thinking, problem solving individuals who will relate science to the real world. Pharmacology involves drugs and their interactions in the human body. Biotechnology is the use of biological systems in technology. Forensics is the interaction of science and the law. Currently, most of the crime labs around the world spend most of their resources on drug identification and the biotechnology of DNA to identify victims and criminals involved in homicides, suicides and natural deaths.
