Blood splattered all over the room. Straw strayed across the floor. A helpless victim lays on the ground. The students scatter around the crime scene, searching for any evidence that could lead to the murder of the scarecrow.

The Forensic Science class did an activity to learn about Crime Scene Investigation in a fun way, allowing them to play different investigating roles on Oct. 14.

“Trying to find all the evidence shows us what forensic scientists actually do,” senior Ryan Roberts said.
