WVU 2015 Forensic Science Summer Camp

Description: The Department of Forensic and Investigative Sciences and the Next Generation Forensic Science Initiative will be hosting a forensic science summer camp for middle school (6th—8th grade) and high school (9th –12th grade) students for one week this summer. The goal of this program is to bring the crime lab to the classroom. Through hands-on, experiential learning, participants will acquire the practical knowledge and skills that forensic scientists employ in their day-to-day casework. At the conclusion of the week, participants will take their newly acquired knowledge and skills and apply them to a mock crime scene at the WVU Crime Scene Complex. Topics in these classes will include: Fingerprints, Footwear Impression Evidence, Firearm Identification, DNA, Bloodstain Pattern Analysis, Digital Evidence, Forensic Microscopy, and Crime Scene Investigation. *Middle school and high school camps will be held concurrently but separate from one another.
