TEACHING BIOTECHNOLOGY IN THE LAB THROUGH FORENSIC SCIENCE

Scienze e tecnologie

Forensic science supports traditional investigations with increasingly refined scientific techniques and methodologies in order to verify a crime or anti-social behavior. The field of forensic science is vast and multidisciplinary. The increasing demand for forensic science analysis has been correlated with the rising demand for professionals with this level of expertise.
The course is therefore aimed at showing some of the different biotechnological techniques used in forensic science in order to support teachers to design Stem activities for their students with the lab experimentation as a core.  It offers an immersive training opportunity with an inquiry-based learning approach in the  equipped biology and genetics laboratories of Fondazione Golinelli. The laboratory practises  allows teachers to have a more accurate approach to the subject, applying modern tools and scientific investigation techniques normally used in international research centers.

Contents and training are designed by Fondazione Golinelli,  an Institution accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education for teachers training. It offers innovative training paths for young people and educators, interdisciplinary research and the support for new business activities. In particular Fondazione Golinelli supports Italian schools in developing the steam curriculum and it takes part in many European projects on science and digital competences.
