Our CSI Campers will solve crimes that would unravel any student and they only have 5 days to do it! Using several different cases, they will process mock crime scenes using “real world” techniques and equipment, and analyze evidence used in the forensic laboratory. Campers projects include: DNA tests, finger prints and lip prints, blood typing, microscopy, hair and fiber analysis, chromatography and handwriting analysis. Campers will use composite facial reconstruction software, as well as test out crime scene search patterns, and learn how teeth impart critical information for investigators. Our young investigators will discover, Frances Glessner Lee, known as “mother of forensic science”, who created composite crime scene models or dollhouses on a one-inch-to-one-foot scale to train law enforcement officials in forensic science. Campers will study their own miniature crime scene dollhouse as they learn to observe, classify, analyze, predict and draw conclusions based on the evidence they find to solve the crime.
