Who Stole the Doughnuts? An Interdisciplinary Forensics Unit
Boles, Stephanie
Science Scope, v34 n7 p18-24 Mar 2011
There was a doughnut thief loose and the students were determined to put their science skills to use to track down the culprit. They would use forensic science to eliminate suspects and identify the thief who stole the doughnuts. School staff take on the role of the likely suspects. It was their goal to develop an interdisciplinary unit that engaged students as critical thinkers, communicators, and investigators. It was successful in this regard. (Contains 4 figures.)
