The students of the Forensic Science Workshop finished with an exciting day today. Today was the court case of the kidnapping of Stanley, the case which they had been studying all week. To prepare for the court meeting, the workshop students reviewed the data they had collected in the various experiments they had done. They discussed the results and voted on who should be brought into court and questioned. Amy spoke to them about the court standing and the different positions they would have to play. After assigning the positions and setting up the room for the hearing, the suspects were brought into court. The defendant and prosecutor questioned the suspects and the jury was sent to decide on the criminal. The students had a lot of fun preparing and executing the court hearing. Turns out in the end Amy was Stanley and had not really been kidnapped, she was just giving the kids a chance to discover their forensic abilities!
