Forensic science online course begins
- Monday, October 2, 2017 from 12:00am to 11:00pm
MSU's National Teachers Enhancement Network offers an exciting general interest, non-credit online course that explores how crimes are solved using science. This course is hands-on and interactive, using real-life case studies, labs, virtual field trips as well as computer simulations. This course is action-packed and hands-on.
The course runs from Oct. 2 to Nov. 17 and is $179. A second optional course will be offered in the spring.
Participants will explore the fields of forensic entomology, DNA and blood spatter analysis, autopsies, fur and fibre analysis, ballistics, cyber evidence and fire science. Students will perform animal necropsies, an entomological study, finger printing and fur and fibre analysis. Real life case studies will be used to investigate how law enforcement officers create evidence-based narratives to tell a story regarding the sequence of events of a crime.
The fall course includes:
Bones, Ballistics, Blood Splatter & Bodies
Improving Observational Skills
Necropsies/ bone, teeth analysis
Blood Spatter Analysis/ DNA
