Learning with a Forensic Scientist


Last week our school had a very special visitor from Bend, Oregon teach us all about her job as a forensic scientist. Tori Dickerson, my sister, shared about fingerprint analysis, DNA, and real life application of science and math in her job. The kids tried on real lab coats and goggles, and received hands-on experience with discovering their own fingerprints on paper using special magnetic powder and brushes. It was rewarding to hear how many students across all grade levels left excited about her job and the possibility of becoming scientists later in life. Her visit reaffirmed my beliefs about the importance of teaching kids directly from experts with 21st century jobs, and providing hands-on experiences so students can learn by actually doing. More pictures from her visit can be found on our school Facebook page.
