Crime Investigation Lesson
CSI Loudon High

On Friday, Feb 7, after completion of the crime scene investigation units, Forensic Science students participated in a lab to apply their new skills. Each student group created a fictional crime scene including various pieces of evidence. Groups then investigated another group's crime scene, using photography, sketches, and notes, proper packaging of evidence and chain of custody forms. On Monday, groups will present the results of their investigations to the class and discuss problems and questions they encountered. Finally, on Tuesday, LHS SRO, Jason Goddard, will meet with the class to discuss actual CSI and answer questions that have risen from this lab.

Steamroller Printmaking
Clck Here to see our students in the News Feature on WBIR's Live at Five

Mrs. Tiffany Martin's advanced art class had a special art project that came to completion today. Over the last 4 weeks students have been designing and carving images into 4x8 ft. sheets of plywood. These giant wood block print plates where then prepped with polyurethan, the paper and material for the prints cut to size waiting for their date with the steamroller. Thanks to a generous donation of time and resources by the City of Loudon a steamroller was hauled to campus to make the prints. Three teams worked hard all morning in the freezing cold to make 10 prints of each wood plate. WBIR came for a visit and will feature the project at 4:00pm today on their Live at 5 program.
