Innovating Science forensic chemistry kit is used to practice hair analysis. Students explore the differences between human and animal hair as well as among various types of human hair for detailed study, and to determine the origin of a hair sample from the crime scene compared to hair samples from the four known suspects. For hands-on learning, the kit has materials for 15 groups of students, including microscope slides, coverslips, deer, cat, and human hair samples, forceps, and wax pencils. The kit has a teacher’s manual and student study guide copy masters for instructional use, and a material safety data sheet (MSDS) packet for product information and handling procedures. The kit is suitable for age 13 and older with adult supervision and is not subject to Department of Transportation (DOT) shipping restrictions.
