Forensic Science HS
Participants take a test of basic forensic science theory to qualify as semifinalists. Semifinalists examine a mock crime scene and demonstrate their knowledge of forensic science and crime scene analysis. Participants are expected to survey the scene and use proper techniques to collect evidence from the mock crime scene. Teams then collect their data and perform a detailed written analysis of the crime scene.
Entries are limited to three (3) teams per chapter.
