Project Title CSI-Forensics
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description Students will be participating in a unit of study called CSI. They will be investigating crime scenes and solving the crimes. The use of the electron microscope will be a fantastic tool for our students to examine pollen samples from their mock crime scenes and compare them to pieces of evidence collected from suspects. Student will utilize the microscope in 3 groups, with 20 minutes of access per group.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? This will be year 4 for Bugscope and I. I had done an Entomology unit for a couple of years and then switched over to a CSI unit last year...which was AMAZING! I first heard about BugScope through a CIT in my district.
