Includes: Enough supplies for 10 student groups



A young woman who lives with her cat was last seen on her daily run. After two days she was reported missing to the police by her friends. Upon entering her penthouse, police found the woman's cat in a pool of blood, shot in the head. Tiny drops of blood were found trailing from her bed sheets to the area near the cat. The detective in charge concluded that the woman and the cat were brutally murdered, the woman's body was removed from the site of the crime and the tiny stains of blood were overlooked when the area was cleaned.

Students will:

  • Analyze samples that were obtained from the “blood” around the dead cat
  • Determine if the blood stains on the bed sheets are human or feline
  • Determine the validity of the hypothesis set forth by the detective

No actual blood or blood products used in this experiment.
