CSI Harrisburg! Registration Opens for Forensic Summer Camp at Harrisburg University

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology is offering aspiring crime scene investigators an opportunity to learn more about forensic science with a summer camp for high school students.

This non-credit camp will introduce students in grades 9th – 12th  different subfields of forensic science through interactive labs, guest speakers, and discussions with current students and faculty. Interactive labs will be comprised of identifying insects at a crime scene using forensic entomology; identifying skeletal remains using forensic anthropology; analyzing evidence in the laboratory (serology, toxicology, etc.); processing the crime through the analysis of a crime scene and comparative sciences (fingerprinting, ballistics, etc.); and interrogating suspects to identify those responsible of the crime. At the end of this non-credit camp, students will be able to network with existing students, faculty, and staff who will assist in answering any questions the students may have about getting involved in the field of forensic science.

The day camp will take place 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., July 11-15 at Harrisburg University.  Cost is $99.

The Forensic Science Camp is one of several summer camps the University is holding.  For more information on the camps, go online to http://www.HarrisburgU.edu/SummerCamps
