Expert Visits Forensic Science Classes at West Seneca West, East High Schools

Forensic Science classes at West Seneca West and East high schools hosted an expert in the field of forensic anthropology as a guest lecturer on Tuesday, Dec. 7.

Dr. Ann Bunch, an assistant professor in the Criminal Justice Department at SUNY Brockport and renowned researcher, spoke to students and worked with them on a bone evidence activity. Students had to study bones to identify whether they were from a male or female, how old they were and the cause of death.

Bunch has extensive experience in forensic anthropology, including recovering and indentifying missing in action lieutenants in Vietnam. She is not only an engaging speaker, but also trained members of West Seneca’s faculty over the summer in preparation for the district’s Forensic Science course, which is in its pilot year. The course is offered in partnership with Syracuse University. Through Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA), qualifying high school students can receive a regular Syracuse University transcript recording their college credit after successful completion of the course.

Bunch visited Lynn Barrett's class at West Senior and Karen Lester's class at East Senior.
