Youth Act ivit ies FORENSIC SCIENCE CAMP FOR YOUNG DETECTIVES This Forensic Science camp will let students jump into the world of real crime scene investigation. We will take on the role of the investigator when we ask, “How can we prove that someone came into a room or touched an object?” There will be hands-on activities and demonstrations of everything that our young C.S.I. investigators will need to know! During this week-long camp, we will cover a wide variety of evidence including: fingerprints, shoe prints, blood (synthetic and only a drop or two), handwriting, trace evidence, forensic anthropology and we’ll examine bones, and MORE! The kids will study how evidence is used in crime scene investigations. We will analyze trace evidence under a microscope and practice collection techniques. Our detectives will do facial reconstruction with clay on plastic skulls. We will also discuss how these types of evidence have been used in REAL cases. The last day of camp culminates with a mock crime scene where students will apply what they have learned. It’s an exciting day for the kids!
