Teacher Comments

The interactive experience is invaluable to the students. This constructivist learning style engages the students and cannot be accomplished using texts.

I feel the e-Lab helped give students an authentic, hands-on experience of the scientific method.

This is a fabulous lab. My 6th graders loved it. The website pre-mission was very easy to follow and was great for teaching deductive reasoning. Highly recommended!

The students and I really enjoyed this as our first E-lab! They were interested and excited about the process. The ideas and questions they developed were excellent and it really focused on their deductive reasoning.  We will definitely look forward to another in the future!

This lab involved all of our students, very informative, and well organized.  The presenter handled questions that came up, could interface with all of the various technology to make our students feel like they were actively using their knowledge of DNA to solve a crime.

My students thoroughly enjoyed this e-Lab and had a blast analyzing evidence and eliminating suspects. Many students were heard saying they wanted to pursue a career with the FBI or be a Crime Scene Investigator.

This is the third year that we have participated in this particular e-Lab. The students have remained excited and engaged through the whole process! The materials provided for prep are very helpful. Lab Director Drury is one of our favorites!! Thank you so much for doing a great job, and for the opportunity to bring this activity to our 7th grade classes.

This was the perfect lab for the kids to participate in to learn the process in which evidence is gathered and studied and analyzed in order to lead to elimination of suspects and potential suspects. Thank you for a great lesson!
