  • Forensic students Abby Thompson, junior, and Grace King, senior, prepare for a lab in Forensic Science class. The students took turns entering a tent and preparing blood splatters.

  • Seniors Kaitlyn Yu, Piya Patel, and Carolina Navarro review the sample their group created. One person entered the tent at a time, while the others got into their gear.

  • A gallon of fake blood sits at the front of Ms. Barnhart’s classroom. The gallon of blood was portioned to groups in order for students to practice working with splatter techniques.

  • Michael Erdelen, senior, returns a bloody sponge to the front of the classroom. The sponges had been battered by the hammers throughout the day, and thus began to take on different shapes, resulting in unique splatters.

  • Forensic students work at different stations throughout the lab. Kaitlyn Yu, senior, reveals “for the computers, we were drawing lines in the direction of the blood splatter.”

  • A hammer lies in a pool of imitation blood. Students used the hammer to release blood inside of a sponge.

  • Senior Iman Idress prepares to review the poster she created while in the tent. Idress was the first in her group to suit up and prepare the splatter.

  • A hammer and paper clips reside in a cardboard box. Alongside gear used for Forensic Science, room 286 is home to a series of scientific and practical materials.

  • Senior Kabir Ghura hammers away at a sponge while in the tent. The sponge was soaked in imitation blood, and when hit, created a splatter effect.

  • Posters of blood samples from previous class periods lay on the tables of the Forensics
