CSI: Aurora Project

CSI: Aurora captures the popularity of forensic television shows and teaches the reality of forensic work through an immersive learning exercise involving a mock crime scene and mock criminal trial, with student participation from archaeology, forensic anthropology, criminal justice, paralegal, and science departments at the Community College of Aurora. Students in each department gain practice in specific methodologies as they relate to real-world applications in a simulated criminal case.
