Electrons and Chemical Reactions STEM Case

The Secret Service has arrested suspects accused of counterfeiting coins from 1915 valued at $50,000 each. The students act as a forensic scientist to investigate the crime scene and examine the evidence. Students learn about electrons and chemical reactions to recreate the methods used to make the coins and prepare evidence for the court case.

STEM Cases are interactive explorations in which students practice problem-solving and critical thinking as they solve a real world problem as a STEM professional.
  • View students results in realtime.
  • Cases take 30-90 minutes to complete.
  • Student progress is automatically saved.
  • Complete in multiple sessions.
