Where's the Shooter? Bullet Trajectory Kit

Using the same techniques as a real forensic scientist, you and your students calculate bullet trajectory and determine the location of the shooter in a mock crime scene. Simply hang the predrilled impact board on the wall of your classroom to begin the investigation.

Included are four 9" trajectory dowels, the predrilled impact board, protractors, trajectory string, tape, and detailed instructions.
Why Forensics?
Forensic science is broadly defined as the application of science to criminal investigations or problem solving. By incorporating a problem-solving approach to science education, teachers are engaging students in exciting and innovative ways. Our forensics materials provide a novel approach to teaching your students the "real-world" applications of science and math.

A forensics approach:
  • Focuses on concepts and skills already emphasized in the science classroom
  • Creates a bridge between science and real-life application
  • Allows students to become investigators and engage in a science-as-inquiry approach
  • Places emphasis on cooperative learning and the relationship between evidence and explanations
