Together, about 300 high school students from different school districts explore not only the science of crime scene forensics, but also the many other areas of study that comprise forensic science. Students from participating districts work together to explore a wide variety of careers that use forensic thinking to solve real-life problems.
Benefits: Students get hands-on experience working with scientific instruments and equipment that improve their observational, academic and interactive skills. Exciting, but difficult challenges test their ability to think, work together and, ultimately, find solutions. Team-building and group activities create new connections between students from different districts and backgrounds, increasing their understanding and appreciation of diversity.
