Just how do detectives know how to match up fingerprints or determine the manor of death? In Forensic Science you get to kindle your fascination for sleuthing and put logic and reason to the test in this crime solving class. Join the investigation as we study the various branches of forensic science; from crime scene investigation to forensic pathology to fingerprint analysis; this class is perfect for any student interested in becoming a forensic scientist. 

This course is designed to give students a broader understanding of what a forensic scientist does. Through hands on labs, internet quests, and job shadowing opportunities, students will take an interactive approach to online Forensic Science.  

 Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the major themes of forensic science, including proper procedures of crime scene investigation; fingerprint and blood splatter analysis, calculation of postmortem interval and identification of human remains. 

Textbook: Forensic Science: Fundamentals & Investigations        ISBN: 13-978-0-538-44586-3

The teacher will provide a digital copy of the first edition of the textbook, note sheets, online simulations, labs, videos, & project instructions.

Students can expect at least 2 hours of homework per week, including readings, web quests, labs, and questions. 

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.

My son loves the Forensics class taught by Ms. Sarah. He is fully engaged in the class and has learning so much from it. He enjoys the hands on activities and “solving” the mysteries/crimes. It is great to see him get excited about a class. Ms. Sarah is truly a great teacher. She is super easy to talk to and loves receiving questions. She has an energy that is just wonderful for this age!

This was the first interactive online class our daughter took with Mrs. Pope and she wound up hooked! She was ready for class early every week and was even upset when a “vacation day” happened because she so wanted to be in class.

The most memorable piece was how this class was able to be taught anywhere. On dissection day, our family had an emergency and one of my friends offered to allow my daughter to bring all of her dissection materials to her home so the class wouldn’t be missed. Her three sons heard about what was being dissected and observed the class and started asking questions themselves. It’s amazing how one’s love of a class can become contagious! Thank you, OTA, for making classes be taught anywhere!

After taking the Dig Deep Marine Biology course, my daughter wanted to take more ocean related classes.. She was so thrilled to find out she could take Big Blue with Mrs. Pope. Mrs. Pope continued to do a wonderful job providing hands on projects that expanded her knowledge and love more marine biology life. If you have a child who is interested in how the ocean works or wants to get into a marine field, this class is great to take!
