Our sleuthy 6th graders worked under the direction of Mr. Puccio and Dr. Soto for a Crime Scene Investigation STEAM activity.

Students examined fingerprints, decoded messages and researched DNA sequencing in order to solve mysteries. They also identified and explored careers related to crime scene investigation (e.g., criminologist, medical examiner, DNA analyst, etc) and related them to a unit of study in biology.

They enjoyed studying the function of DNA and tools used with DNA in crime scene investigations.
