Welcome, you are visiting Forensics Sci

Digital Forensics Science Learning
This project is funded by the STEM+Computing Partnership (STEM+C) program which seeks to advance new approaches to, and evidence-based understanding of, the integration of computing in STEM teaching and learning. This project will contribute to that effort by engaging young women in computer science as applied to the field of cyber forensics, and the integration of computing in computing-intensive STEM fields. The project is guided by research showing that young women are attracted to careers that improve society; thus, learning the application of computer science to solve cyber crimes, has potential to attract female participation in the cybersecurity field. Students will learn computing skills through an innovative cybercrime system that will engage students in real investigations. The project will teach young women in grades 9-12 a range of essential topics, including forensic science, scientific inquiry, critical thinking, computation thinking, data analysis, basic programming, and ethics in computing. Through an interactive platform, students will act as forensic, cybercrime investigators.
