Forensics is an exciting field of study, utilizing several scientific fields which include biology, chemistry, zoology, anatomy, genetics, physics, math and psychology, just to name a few. Students will be applying their critical thinking skills to solve various crimes, as well as learn the basic techniques used by forensic scientists to collect and analyze evidence. The information students learn during the course will be demonstrated during their final project in which they will process and document a crime scene. Toward the end of the the course, a field trip will be taken to the Sioux Falls Police Department to learn about the criminal processing side of the law. We will also visit Colorado Tech. in Sioux Falls for a presentation on forensics by an expert latent fingerprint examiner.
