CSI Camp: With today’s explosion of television programs and media coverage of the latest advances in forensic sciences, students from kindergarten to high school have become fascinated with everything associated with forensic science. The CSI Summer Camp was developed to give hands-on experiences to those students who enjoy solving puzzles, attending science museums, and watching suspenseful forensic science television shows.
Students will take part in an interactive crime scene and participate in a virtual mock trial with their peers as they seek to solve a heinous crime. Students will have the opportunity to meet real forensic science personnel as they perform real time analysis on genuine crime scene evidence on high tech instrumentation.
Participants will will be introduced to different sections of the crime lab (including DNA, fingerprints, drugs, toxicology, and ballistic) by DEA, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies. Students will also be able to conduct forensic experiments from the safety of their own homes using a forensic kit that is included with registration. The camp will take the participants on a journey into the field of forensics, offering students an opportunity to conduct a crime scene investigation from start to finish.
The goal of the camp is to increase students’ understanding of the forensic sciences and provide a foundation for further exploration of related career fields.
