What is the Forensic Science Summer Camp?
The Next Generation Forensic Science Initiative in collaboration with the Department of Forensic and Investigative Science at West Virginia University will be hosting its annual forensic science summer camp for high school students (9th – 12th grade).
Through both conceptual and experiential learning students will acquire the practical knowledge and skills that forensic scientists utilize in their day-to-day casework. At the conclusion of the week, students will apply what they have learned to mock crime scenes at the Crime Scene Training Complex.
