Come check out our action-packed one week Forensics academiccourse and learn all about how crime scene investigation is really conducted! Perfect for those who are interested in Anatomy and Biology, no other course combines these topics as well as Forensics.
Last year, students acquired knowledge of fingerprinting and did a mock case using fingerprinting to find the culprit. Students got to make molds of their fingers and footprints; all identifying characteristics used by investigators. They learned about anatomical indicators in bone structure, tissues and teeth to figure out who victims were when their identity cannot be determined. Students did DNA typing using gel electrophoresis and conducted blood typing as well. They learned how to analyze a variety of fibers in crime scenes.

'I think the Forensics program was fun and informational. The activities we did were fun; for example when we made a model of our finger, a shoe print, blood drops, and looking at our hair in the microscopes. Also, our teacher Fox did a good job teaching us the different forensic techniques.'
'I really enjoyed learning about crime scenes and CSI work. Our teacher Josh made learning fun and really improved my understanding of forensics.'
'I enjoyed the program a lot. My favorite parts of it was learning about DNA, watching the different forensic videos, going to the police station and doing the crime scenes.'
'It was very informative and there were many fun experiments. I liked fingerprinting and creating a crime scene.'
"The program I took was forensics taught by Dr. Fox. We learned about how they get shoe prints, fingerprints, lip prints and any other impression. We also learned about blood spatters and how to tell the velocity of the weapon and what weapon might’ve been used. I thought Dr. Fox was a very good teacher and he was very good at explaining everything."
"In this program, we discussed and experimented with different ways to analyze crime scenes. This included experiments like document analysis (forgery), toxicology, dental impressions, fingerprinting and DNA analysis. Mr. Isaacs was a very dedicated and fun teacher. You could tell that he loves what he does and is very good at answering any questions I have."
"I really enjoyed this program. We covered a ton of different topics and learned lots of new and cool things. There was a good balance between listening and hands-on. The teacher was super fun and did a great job passing on his knowledge of the topic."
“I enjoyed the finger molds and fingerprint labs. The fingerprint lab was my favorite, especially when we had to identify as unknown person.”
“The program introduced me to the ways that forensics is used to catch murders and how to use evidence to determine what exactly happened at the crime scene. I enjoyed how the class felt less like a class and we were actually having fun learning instead of being forced to learn. The teacher was very knowledgeable and fun to be around.”
“Our teacher was very nice and was extremely knowledgeable about all the subjects we covered. The blood spatter subject was very fun to learn about and I found it very interesting.”
