When crimes occur, it’s up to Crime Scene Analysts to collect clues that, together, tell the story of what happened and who might be responsible. Step into their shoes during this camp, as we explore forensics and learn what it takes to examine the evidence and solve the crime. Evidence comes in all shapes and sizes, and this Forensic Science Camp gives an in-depth introduction to some of the most common types of evidence and how they are used to solve crimes. Hear about how professions in law enforcement and the judicial system work together and understand the journey evidence takes from the crime scene to the court room.

This camp is for Grades 4-7, however activities will slightly vary between the two age groups.
