WVU set to host forensic science camp for youth

Middle and high school students can learn the tools of crime scene investigation and register for the annual Forensic Science Day Camp at West Virginia University.

Hosted by the Forensic and Investigative Science Program, the camp runs June 10-14 for students in grades seven through nine and June 24-28 for students in grades 10 through 12.

The camp fee is $280, which includes lunch daily and a T-shirt. If more than one student from a family wishes to attend, it is $280 for the first student and $260 for each additional sibling.

The deadline to register is June 10 for the seventh- through ninth-grade camp session and June 23 for the 10th- through 12th-grade camp session.

Participants will process “crime scenes” and collect evidence using photography, fingerprinting, tool marks, footwear imprinting, DNA analysis, blood spatter analysis and trace evidence microscopy.

After learning how to handle evidence, campers will process a crime scene at the WVU Forensic Crime Scene Complex.

For more information, contact Tina Moroose, camp director, at 304-293-5346 or Tina.Moroose@mail.wvu.edu.
