Forensic science offers a great opportunity to do a variety of scientific tests in one fun science project.
Creating a complete crime scene with the associated experiments for the students to do requires a lot of preparation....
...But, once you’ve created the crime scene, and have the lab supplies handy, it is much easier to set it up the second time around.
