Students in Mr. Sweeting's Forensics class worked in teams to examine a mock crime scene. A simulated stabbing with a blood filled pipette sprayed blood droplets all over the floor and walls of the classroom. Students used the head and tail observations of the blood droplets, a protractor, string and trigonometry to determine where the killer was standing.
