CSI Lacey is a science-focused club in which students will learn about the different types of forensics and conduct scientific experiments using investigative techniques. This year members will have the chance to problem-solve “crimes” by analyzing fingerprints, studying different types of hair, examining ransom notes and discovering the type of ink used, inspecting types of shoe impressions, and scrutinizing different types of handwriting.
There will be times that we use chemicals* and scientific tools. I have stressed the importance of safe lab behavior and how it ensures learning and creates a stronger cooperative community. Students who are unable to function in a lab setting will be asked to stay in the office during lab time, and may be removed from the club if inappropriate behaviors continue. Lab safety is crucial to the success of our club!
Science is a fantastic subject that consistently integrates math, art, social studies, and technology! I know our club will have a great year of learning, as well as building friendships and having a solid sense of club unity. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me anytime:

*The strongest chemical we will be using is acetone (fingernail polish remover). Our room will be well-ventilated, but if your child has extreme sensitivity, please let me know and I can make alternative arrangements. Thank you!
