Forensic Science

With more than 16 different labs part of our Quality Matters-certified forensic science discipline, you can be confident you're delivering forensic science labs online that are just as rigorous and high-quality as your on-campus labs.While working through our Forensics lessons, students will gain core competencies in cutting-edge skills such as crime-scene sketching, latent print detection, and spot-testing for explosive residues. They will use in-depth analyses of glass, hair, fibers, and soils to learn modern techniques as they engage in exciting investigations to determine how trace evidence is transferred between suspects, victims, and crime scenes. All of our labs are based on extensive academic research, developed by scientists, peer-reviewed, and customizable to suit your needs.

Hands-on Forensic Science Labs

With our broad range of innovative hands-on labs, your students can investigate a wide range of topics, including fingerprinting, autopsy processes, toxicology, blood analysis, and more. With Science Interactive, you can:

  • Create an active learning environment online that promotes deeper student engagement, critical thinking, and problem solving.
  • Give students the chance to use lab-grade materials and equipment that match the sophistication of a formal lab facility.
  • Build hands-on kits that suit your needs and budget, like choosing between magnifiers and v-scopes.

Virtual Forensic Science Labs

Similarly, our virtual forensic science labs can supplement hands-on labs that require expensive equipment and be used to cover fundamental concepts like the scientific method. You might also consider using virtual forensic science labs as pre-lab work for in-person labs in order to better prepare students. From a simulation illustrating blood spatter analysis and DNA extraction to documenting crime scenes, students can run virtual forensic science labs an unlimited number of times in order to:

  • Manipulate different variables, re-run the experiment, and see different results, especially important for struggling students.
  • Reinforce critical learning outcomes while exploring additional concepts that may not directly align with your course objectives.
  • Ensure practicality when it comes to costs and time.

Effective, High-Quality Forensic Science Curriculum

Science Interactive develops the highest quality online curriculum for both hands-on or virtual forensic science labs. Lesson are:

  • Developed by PhD scientists, with measurable learning outcomes, detailed experimental protocols, and questions that tie into the core learning objectives.
  • Reviewed by instructional designers for quality, accuracy, safety, and ADA compliance — and peer-reviewed by active professors for content accuracy.
  • Certified by Quality Matters to ensure the same standards of rigor and quality as on-campus forensic science courses.

Flexible Platform to Guide Students through Forensic Science Labs

All of the curriculum is turnkey and can be used in your course right away. We also make it easy to customize, infusing each lab with your own unique instructional style and outcomes. Our LMS-integrated lab management platform allows you to:

  • Customize any part of a lesson by adding or removing text, images, and videos to enhance lessons and guide students through each forensic science lab.
  • Assess student work with automatic grading for multiple choice questions.
  • Provide constructive feedback so each student can continue improving for the next lab.
