About this Grantee

To explore scientific concepts and develop students’ critical thinking skills, Ms. Jensen and Ms. Blanchard create a forensic science unit. Students investigate the murder of a fictional teacher using physics, biology, and chemistry to determine the perpetrator. After researching background information, questioning suspects, designing and conducting experiments, and gathering data, students prepare a Power Point presentation detailing their investigation and theory of the crime.
