"It's ELEMENTary, My Dear Watson": A Crime Scene Investigation with a Technological Twist
Albert, Jennifer; Blanchard, Margaret; Grable, Lisa; Reed, Rebecca
Science Scope, v34 n4 p16-22 Dec 2010
The Crime Scene Labs is a technology-enhanced unit with seven laboratory stations. Probes at many of the stations facilitate students collecting and analyzing their own data (some lessons are adapted from Volz and Sapatka 2000). The labs are designed to build 21st-century skills and model reform-based practices (NRC 1996). The crime scene allows science concepts to be introduced or reviewed in a high-interest, real-world format. (Contains 6 online resource and 5 figures.)
