Program Description

There has been a kidnapping at the City Analyst’s laboratory! As part of an investigative team, students must consider all the evidence to deduce WHO committed the crime, HOW they did it, and WHY. In groups of 3 to 6 people, students receive a case briefing, then move through five stations of physical, financial, and eyewitness evidence. At the end the group will convene to discuss their results!

This program is ideal for classes studying the Canadian justice system, policing, and forensic methods. French-language handouts and briefing materials are available on request.
