About The Product

FORENSIC SCIENCE VIRTUAL LAB CRIME SCENE 2 will ignite student excitement with a new way to experience science. The virtual labs provide students with realistic field experience within an online environment, ideal for reinforcement or assessment opportunities. The lab activities span the crime-scene investigation workflow from start to finish, allowing students to gain insight into what it is like to be a real forensic scientist. Virtual Labs give your students the opportunity to utilize resources and techniques that are unavailable in the school environment.

Set the scene for online learning success with the new VIRTUAL LABS, and lead your students to the right conclusion.
