CSI: WEB ADVENTURES is a website providing engaging learning experiences focusing on forensic science concepts.
Users work their way through a series of five cases from beginner to advanced levels. The video-rich interactives incorporate characters from the popular television series. Players use real-world tools in a simulated lab to identify clues and complete assignments.
The educator’s section includes guides for teachers and families. It also links to online activities, demonstration videos, and cool links.
The game features area includes additional assistance in using the simulations and background information about the characters.
Librarians will find this app to be a fun way to kick off a forensic science unit with students. Combine the interactive experience with books and hands-on activities in the library. Consider building your own mystery and investigation in the library for students to complete based on what they learned in the online experience.
