New ELI+ Forensic geoscience

Our new Earthlearningidea is 'Innocent until proven guilty; using forensic geoscience to solve the crime' This activity can be included in any lesson where problem-solving skills are required. It is adaptable to local conditions - local samples of soil, sand or rocks can be used. Also local suspects e.g. the teacher, can be used!
Forensic geoscience uses evidence from geological materials (sediments, minerals, microfossils, soils) at the scene of a crime to support or defend against a prosecution in court.
