JHS Students Get Real Life Forensics Lesson
Around 80 ninth grade physical science students at Jennings High School participated in a live videoconference Thursday with the St. Louis, Mo. Police Department, as well as students from Columbia High School in South Carolina. Physical and environmental science teacher Julie Richard said the program was broadcast live on HEC-TV in St. Louis and on the web for parents or anyone else who wanted to get a glimpse of the students getting a real life lesson on forensics from actual police officers. The students were given a case to examine and were able to ask police questions about processing a crime scene, interviewing witnesses, writing police reports, processing evidence and ultimately solving the crime. JHS student Breann Davis “defines the crime” giving officers her class’s analysis of the crime scene.
