Virtual School

Virtual SchoolThe Crime Museum, in conjunction with the University of Florida, offers a virtual classroom for teachers and as college preparatory courses for those interested in the study of forensic science. The virtual school will offer classes in a variety of CSI labs, which are also currently offered to the public at the Crime Museum’s DC location.

Join our team of experts who will guide you through the real science behind CSI, and take you step-by-step through the collection, examination, and analysis of forensic evidence. These highly interactive virtual workshops will place the investigator’s tools in your hands and teach you the tricks to solve the crime. With a wide range of topics to discover, you’ll keep coming back for more.

Program includes:

  • Customized programs have been created for each track to suit your particular needs.
  • Interactive activities that will teach you real techniques used in the forensic community
  • Teachers can learn how to incorporate this into their classroom.
  • Certificate of completion.

Teacher’s Track

Intro to Evidence
Before you dive into the scientific depths of evidence collection and interpretation, learn the context of that evidence here: understand the role of forensic science in the legal system, know the careers available to a future forensic scientist, and try your hand at finding evidence you’re leaving behind right now!

Fingerprinting
Learn how professional crime scene investigators find and collect various types of fingerprints. Then, step into the role of a fingerprint examiner as you test your skills at fingerprint comparison.

Bloodstain Pattern Analysis

Sometimes called blood spatter, bloodstain patterns are exciting pieces of evidence that can reveal anything at a violent crime scene from the original location and angle of attack to the number of blows struck by an attacker. Here you’ll learn the different types of bloodstain patterns and how to interpret them.

Moot Court
A vital part of a forensic scientist’s job is court testimony, when you must convey your findings to a judge and jury. Here you’ll learn how this process works, then experience a direct and cross-examination yourself as you testify as an expert witness.
