Unknown Powder Identification

Forensics & NGSS

Coming in Fall 2017

Facilitators: Mary Clark (Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry Instructor) & Scott McCartney (John Hancock College Prep)

Try out labs that engage students in NGSS Science and Engineering Practices while exploring key ideas in Forensics! Under the guidance of experienced high school teachers and Northwestern University scientists, teachers will learn new ways to introduce hands-on activities like Unknown Powder Identification, Blood Typing, Blood Splatter Evidence, DNA Gel Electrophoresis, and PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction).

This workshop is presented in conjunction with the Chicago Public Schools Department of Science.
