Science And Technology Tuesday: Paging Dr. Quincy

How's this for a high interest high school science class?
McCracken County, KY - Sleek crime scene shows like CSI aren't only drawing a big audience, but have really turned students on to science. So much so some Heartland schools are now offering forensic science classes.

Science teacher Sheri Davis teaches a forensic science class at Heath High School in McCracken County.

The kids aren't solving real murders just yet, but they're on their way to solving big crimes. Science reporter Jason Lindsey caught up with the future scientists as they carefully unearthed a skeleton. They then took the bones back to a lab where they cleaned them and solved the crime.

Right now it's all pretend, but someday you might see one of these kids solving a real life crime.
