Catch of the Day - CSI: Web Adventures - 11/29/2010

CSI: Web Adventures enables your students to learn something about forensic science and apply their knowledge of science in an entertaining and engaging environment.


Inspired by the popular CBS television series, CSI: Web Adventures presents three interactive "cases" to students, one at the beginner, one at the intermediate, and one at the advanced level. Each case is designed to be played in one sitting of approximately 30-45 minutes. Registered users can save and resume a game in progress.


CSI: Web Adventures put you in the shoes of a rookie crime scene investigator. You will need the help of fellow CSI agents. Navigating the virtual CSI world takes many different forms, inlcuding interacting with lab equipment, talking with the characters, and making choices as to how you will proceed.


CSI: Web Adventures is Flash-based and runs in most browsers on both Mac and Windows. CSI: Web Adventures is also available in Spanish and German.


CSI: Web Adventures is a multi-organization effort, including Rice University and CBS, supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Several of my students would really enjoy this interface for learning science. They love the forensic science shows and often ask why they can't learn science like this. Now they can!
