AiS Challenge Team Abstract team #075

Team Number: 075

School Name: Santa Fe High

Area of Science: Forensic osteology

Project Title: Mathematical Applications in Forensic Osteology



Our project will mathematically model the determination of age, race and sex based on data input from skeletal remains. This application will make it possible to assist in identifying the remains of victims of crime or accident in which only the skeleton remains. It allows easier entry and quicker notification so that identification of the subject may be sooner. The program will allow information concerning the shapes and biometrics of the bones to be entered. The output of the program will be the sex, race, and range of ages of the subject. Dental records, records of broken bones and mineral content may also be included in the program if time permits. The computer is necessary due to the number of variables that must be entered.
