SVVSD gives freshmen a high school preview

Incoming freshmen at Lyons Middle/Senior High School have two weeks to use science to solve the mystery of a kidnapped fox, then participate in a mock trial to make a case for or against the person they determine was the villain.

They looked at evidence that included fingerprints, footprints, DNA and a mystery metal, as well as interviewing potential suspects. A police officer offered tips on crime scene investigation, while a prosecutor will help with their trial preparation.
