Forensics:  The Case of the Missing Chef

The Career Education Students at RMS rotated among three 60-minute lessons at Roper Mountain Science Center. Students were introduced to a cold case involving a missing chef.

In three separate sessions, students acted as forensic specialists, analyzing materials found at the crime scene. They performed strawberry DNA extract, evaluated DNA samples, determined blood type and, in the chemistry component, analyzed known and unknown materials found at the scene.

At the end of the day, students had enough information to formulate a theory of the crime and write an analysis from the perspective of a detective working on the case.
