Looking for Forensic Science Resources


So Cindy my wife, @TeachHrfrd is teaching a Forensics Science class this year. She and Bryan Hedrick, a really good Law Enforcement CT&E Teacher will be team-teaching this class for the first time at our high school this year. It should be a very interesting class. Both of the teachers are enjoyed by our students, their classes are almost always overflowing, and quite a few of our senior students are fighting just to get in to Mrs. Peters & Mr. Hedrick's classes. When the school opened it up for students 97 signed up for just 1 class!

One of Cindy's main focus while attending ISTE 2010 this year was to gather resources that they may use in class. They will be attending a cool conference in Forensics in Huntsville, TX the 2nd week in August, right before school starts. But as many of us do during the summer, they are trying to look around for what others think might be a "Best Practice" in Forensics. So if any of you out their in my PLN have such a course at your school, are aware of any good Forensics resources or websites that might contain lessons or lesson plans, please make a comment, share a link or offer whatever you think might be useful.

Anything you have to offer would be greatly appreciated. I will add the links that I find and those that people leave me in the resources below.

Follow-up Note: Thanks to everyone in my PLN who contributed to this article. Thanks for the many tweets, re-tweets for information, and links that you sent. @TeachHrfrd sends her thanks as well.
