Forensic Science is a great elective choice for those interested in science. Students will apply course concepts to analyze evidence and to evaluate and discuss current events and trends in forensic science. Topics discussed in the course include different types of physical evidence used during investigations, forensic anthropology (the study of bones), and forensic entomology (the study of bugs!).
Course materials: Online readings, videos and virtual activities will be available week-by-week within the course. Before a student can enroll in a MNOHS science course, MNOHS must receive a permission form signed by a parent or guardian (if the student is under 18).
Standards met: This is an elective course. It is recommended for students who have met all the Minnesota Academic Standards in Science and who are interested in a more topical approach to science.
Honors Opportunity: No
