How could water kill you? Using a series of clues, students act as forensic biochemists to discover the source of a deadly illness. After the activity, students discuss:
– If something like this were to happen today, how might a forensic biochemist be involved?
– How could water be used in a crime? How might forensic biochemists respond?
– How can forensic biochemists help monitor and minimize human impacts on the environment?
