Bullet Striations kit
More than one gun? Your students must examine a bullet that was found at the scene of the crime to discover more details about the events surrounding the murder!
Outside the cabin crime scene, there is evidence of a struggle. A bullet was found lodged in the mud. At a separate crime scene, investigators have found an unloaded gun that was presumed to have been left behind by two of the suspects. Students need to compare bullet striations to see if the bullet found outside the cabin was fired by the gun found by the police.
To do this, students will compare the markings left on bullets to see if the striations will match up. They will analyze physical bullets, as well as microscopic images of the striations.
As in all Lyle and Louise modules, this kit is geared to high school and undergraduate courses, and is matched to National Science Education Standards.
