Forensic Science

Many have seen the popular TV show CSI, but what really happens to the evidence collected at actual crime scenes? Where does it go, how does it tell its story and, most importantly, how can it be used to solve the crime? Forensic Science camp will answer these questions for campers who will get the opportunity to investigate and perhaps solve a cold case file. Through scientific methods used by actual crime labs, campers will analyze the evidence and use it to solve the crime.
