Las Lomas Forensic Science
Welcome to the Forensic Science home page.  Your
journey this year will be one that I think is enjoyable but at
the same time stretch your academic and intellectual
abilities.  Analytical Forensic Science is a field that has
been thrust en vogue lately but has been used in the
solving of crimes for centuries.  It is a world beyond the
glamour of the TV version CSI where real people become
the stars of true drama in solving often heinous crimes
against society.  Whether this class takes you into a career
in a branch of Forensics or just strengthens your analytical
abilities I hope you extend the effort to get as much out of
the class as possible.
