Using Chemistry and Biology lab forensic techniques, you will solve a “crime.” You’ll learn how to take DNA samples and do analysis, study fingerprints, do pen and ink analysis, hair and fiber testing and more! You’ll learn actual case histories from a law enforcement officer. Each camper will be working to find the solution. Prizes will be awarded daily and a grand prize winner will be announced at the end of camp.
It’s not all brainpower; we’ll have fun activities and snacks each day. Every participant will get a free t-shirt and we’ll also have a pizza part on the last day of camp.
This program is for talented students entering the 8th or 9th grades. To be considered for the camp, you must get a referral form from your science teacher and turn it in, along with your application packet and your registration fee. Hurry!!
