Can the bugs help solve the crime...
Maggots from Murders! provides students with an understanding of insect behavior, animal growth and development, climatological data, and the investigative procedures critical to solving a murder.
Maggots from Murders! is a result of perceived needs of science teachers and other educators seeking to use forensic science as a tool to bring students, both those with minimal interest in science and those deeply entrenched in science, into the exceting elements of scientific research, scientific application, and the general study of science.
Over the last decade, interest in forensic science has expanded by quantum leaps due to high profile court cases, true life forensic TV programs, mystery novels utilizing forensic science to solve the crimes, and fictional forensic crime shows.
