Students complete a fictional forensics lab with blood stain splatters as part of a linked cohort course.

As part of their linked cohort course (LCC) experience this semester, students in Dr. Danielle Garrett’s chemistry LCC researched forensic science/investigation topics in small groups, one of which was bloodstain analysis. As a follow-up, students spent time in the lab investigating the impact of distance and angle on simulated blood stains and patterns.

Students used their results to interpret and recreate a simulated blood stain pattern from a fictional crime scene.
