Crime Solving on Campus: UF’s CSI Summer Camp Teaches Scientific Techniques
The University of Findlay’s five-day Forensic Science Summer Camp, also known as CSI Camp, is still accepting participants for its June 13-17 session.
Designed for high school students, the residential camp presents a series of unsolved crimes for participants to solve using biology, chemistry, math and physics skills to analyze the evidence they gather. Teams are charged with examining evidence left behind at the pseudo crime scene in order to identify clues.
Students will present their findings at the end of the week with a chance for cash awards for the teams that were the most successful.
Students will also have opportunities to interact with UF faculty who have had on-the-job experience with the Department of Homeland Security, Secret Service, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. In fun, practical and informative ways, the camp, which the University has offered for more than a decade, will enhance career explorations in forensic science and criminal justice.
The cost is $425 and includes room and board, snacks, meals, materials and a T-shirt.
