Montgomery HS Forensic Science Makes a Scene

Pounding sponges soaked in corn syrup, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, and black cherry Kool-aid, Mrs. Elizabeth Hall’s Forensic Science classes analyze “blood” splatter.

“This is my favorite unit because what we did with it really helped up learn about it, plus it’s really interesting,” junior Chelsea Kohler said.

Students used a mallet and a screwdriver as their weapons to see the force of the objects.

“It’s fun because you get to smash a hammer into a sponge, but I didn’t enjoy getting my hands all sticky,” junior Alexcia Cleboski said.
