Timberdoodle's review
The Mystery of Lyle and Louise
Are your teens exasperated at the ho-hum selections your homeschool co-ops are offering? When the most exciting class is poetry writing or oil painting, is it any wonder that they would look longingly at the wider selection offered by both private and government schools? Put some zing back into your co-op and watch the teens enroll in droves with The Mystery of Lyle and Louise.

Hands-on Science and Social Justice
The National Science Education Standards would like to see students actively participating in scientific investigations. The Mystery of Lyle and Louise is a proven solution for engaging teens in science through forensic investigation. Students are drawn towards forensic science not only because it is hands-on science but also because of the desire to see justice prevailing.

Complete Curriculum with Nine Analytical Techniques
Until now, the lack of background knowledge and/or highly technical equipment has prevented the introduction of forensic science as a homeschool option. But The Mystery of Lyle and Louise is a comprehensive kit, designed as a complete curriculum for homeschooled students. In it, your teens will learn how forensic scientists perform the nine following analytical techniques: Blood Spatter Analysis, Forensic Entomology, Foot-print Analysis, Blood Detection and Evidence Processing, Document Analysis, Fingerprint Analysis, Bite Marks Analysis, Glass Fragment Identification, and Drug Testing and Analysis. After practicing these techniques, the students will analyze evidence in The Mystery of Lyle and Louise kit to examine the crime.

Introduces Skills in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Criminal Justice
Supplies in the kit are for groups of about six students. The Mystery of Lyle and Louise is geared to high school and undergraduate courses and is matched to National Science Education Standards. The teacher manual is found on an interactive CD-ROM. There are some charts and files that are only accessible via internet, so computer access is required. The Mystery of Lyle and Louise introduces skills in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, criminal justice, and more, so it is relevant to a wide range of career aspirations. Nearly every-thing you need for all the labs is included; see below for a complete list of what you will need to also have on hand.
