TV show is heavily dramatized and doesn't necessarily paint a realistic picture
of what it's like to work as a Crime Scene Investigator. However, that doesn't
mean that real forensics isn't fun and exciting in its own right. Throughout
the year, we'll be studying lots of fascinating techniques that real scientists
use every day to solve crimes.
enthusiastic about exploring this fascinating subject with our students. We
hope that you find Crime Scene Investigation to be as cool as we do.
