MODEL SETS FOR FORENSIC SCIENCE
FC160 POISONED APPRECIATION
The annual Teacher’s Appreciation Luncheon has become a cautionary tale after one teacher died and four teachers came down with suspected food poisoning. Students explore the chemical properties and structural formulas of reducing sugars, starch, protein, and fat, build a series of molecular models, and analyze the results of chemical tests to determine which food at the luncheon was poisoned.
FC125 DRUG TESTING
In this activity, students act as members of a hospital administration who are responsible for developing an effective substance-abuse prevention and drug testing program. Students will explore the chemical and physical properties of five illicit drugs and build a model for each drug. Students will analyze the results of urine test data and evaluate drug use among hospital applicants and employees.
