Submitted. Future CSI-ers in our district now have a perfect starting point. Forensic Science 11 is a newly approved Board/Authority Authorized elective course to be offered at Rick Hansen Secondary.
The course synopsis notes “Forensic Science 11 is a course designed to encourage and support students’ consolidating concepts from science, technology, and humanities and applying them to the real life situation of analyzing evidence at a crime scene.
This hands-on approach offers students an
engaging opportunity to internalize the scientific method,
develop process skills, and promote awareness of civic
responsibility and the criminal justice system, while
gaining understanding of current and past events through
case studies.” The course was developed by Rick Hansen
teacher Silvia-Carmen Comanescu.
