Are you a middle school student who is interested in Bones and CSI? If the answer is "YES!" then this Forensic Camp is for you. Learn about and get a behind-the-scenes look at the field of forensic science. Through participatory research using written and digital media, field trips to the morgue, lectures and hands-on activities in the lab students will learn about the field of forensic. Students will also have the opportunity to interact with individuals in the field and learn firsthand about their motivation, passion, and envision a day in their life. Students will be required to conduct research, ask questions, and make presentations to the group.
For their safety, it is important that each student wears comfortable clothing (which may get a bit dirty) and closed-toe shoes.
The camp will be held in the Sonderegger Science Center, with field trips to the State Historical Society, PROMEGA, and the morgue.
June 24-28, 2013, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. daily.
Lunch is not provided; please send a bag lunch with your child each day. Mid-morning snack will be provided.
For students entering grades 7-9 in the fall.
