  • Mock Crime Scene Analysis Brings Forensics to Life for Students at SHHS

    Long one of the hottest shows on television, a new season of CSI debuted this fall right here at SHHS.  No, not the actual TV series, but a lesson in Mr. Hanuschak’s SUPA Forensics class. The mock crime scene, created in the SHHS courtyard, was complete with shell casings, faux drugs and money, and even a bloodied victim. SUPA Forensics is a dual-enrollment course that allows students to take a freshman college level course class that earns them credits through Syracuse University. Students observed and then created detailed sketches of the mock crime scene - and from these began analyzing, making inferences based on clues and plans for next steps to the investigation.
