Course DescriptionFSI: Forensic Science Goes to Court (9th the 12th grades) (2-week camp - online)
A burning car, multiple missing persons, dry bank accounts and suspects galore – this murder mystery is not for the faint of heart. Campers will participate in laboratory techniques commonly used in the forensic industry, as well as examine a mock crime scene. The accumulation of evidence through drug analysis, blood spatter examination, fire debris composition testing and other practices take part over a two weeks of investigation. Both weeks are encouraged for the full experience. Week 1 campers conclude their initial investigation by acting as the Grand Jury by establishing probable cause and screening criminal indictments. Week 2 campers continue to strengthen their case and finish with criminal sentencing in a mock trial where the accused face their accusers. Will the deceased receive justice? Or will the suspect be released by lack of evidence? You decide.
