The evidence shows that students become more interested and engaged in science when they can approach it in a hands-on way. Forensic Science for High School not only captures their interest, but allows students to practice science in collaborative and interactive ways that make learning relevant and fun. Teachers can use the flexible eBook as an effective supplement for biology, chemistry, or general science classes. Additional resources, like NSTA SciLinks® and labs, are easily accessed from the online text.

Optimized for use on PCs and Macs, interactive and engaging virtual autopsies are available in five chapters and bring an integral part of forensics into the 21st century. Virtual autopsies give students an opportunity to examine a case study, conduct an autopsy, record information and take notes just like a pathologist, then hypothesize and determine a manner of death.
