||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 (6thâ€”8th grade) and high school (9th â€“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.
