Crime scene tape sets the scene for the mock disturbances.

Honors Chemistry folks are on the scene of a deadly plane crash/murder scene in Room 262! Who’s the culprit?? Is it “Connie Majors”, the disgruntled pharmacist? Is it “Archie Starr”, the Diet Coke-addicted teacher? Is it Lief B. Wilton, the depressed environmentalist?  Thanks to Ofc. UB for the crime scene tape!

In this lab activity, students are doing simulated trace chemical analysis of substances found at a mock crime scene. Through calculating empirical and molecular formulas from percent compositions, students attempt to solve a murder and a plane crash!
