CLARK — Students in Mrs. Nagourney’s forensics class at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark recently spent time in the school library organizing “crime” scenes and gathering “evidence.” School media specialist Kate Ryan facilitated the process for the students.
“I truly enjoy having students in the school library exploring their interests,” she said.
The students participating in this forensics project enjoyed setting up the crime scenes, photographing evidence, and analyzing their findings. Other groups of students in the class had to review the findings and weigh the results, as well. Senior forensics student Christian Alvarado said, “the project served as part of the final exam for this semester course. It was a good experience and I always enjoy coming down to the school library.”
