Final Genius Hour

Today in genius hour I continued reading Hidden Evidence, and took notes about the history of forensic science. I used this and created more slides and decided which information should go in each one. Finally, I decided to spend a lot of time this weekend to work on the project and ensure I will finish on time.

Final Genius Hour

Today I read some of a book about forensic science called Hidden Evidence. This book tells you all about forensic science techniques and true crimes and how these techniques helped solve them. Then, I researched forensic science regulations. Finally, I continued to create and design my google slides.

Final Genius Hour

Today in genius hour I went way back and learned about the history of forensic science techniques. The most surprising thing I learned was that the first official autopsy was done on Julius Caesar, and gave the conclusion that the second stab endured was the fatal one (the 20 stabs following this were useless). Finally, I took notes on these and tracked a little activity in forensic science techniques from 44 BC to present day.
