Spring Hill High hosts student Forensic Sciences Competition

SPRING HILL Scenes of murder, domestic violence and arrests took place at the Northfield Workforce Development Conference Center on Wednesday, but, thankfully, it was all just a drill.

The future law enforcement agents put their knowledge of criminal justice to the test here in Maury County for Spring Hill High School’s annual Forensic Sciences Competition.

In the two-day event, the high school students from 18 schools worked in teams, competing in activities related to law enforcement.

They were tested on their ability to investigate a mock crime scene, using the same standards and procedures employed by law enforcement including examining an object for fingerprints and recording those prints, conducting roadside sobriety tests, making a traffic stop with an armed felon, responding to a domestic assault call and holding appellate court.

“It gives them a lot of leadership,” Spring Hill High School’s criminal justice instructor

The University of Central Oklahoma’s W. Roger Webb Forensic Science Institute (FSI) and the university’s chapter of Delta Delta Epsilon, the international forensic science honor society, will host “Get a Clue!”, an interactive murder mystery, from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 in the FSI building on Central’s campus. The event is free and open to the public.

“Get a Clue!” allows guests to learn about various stages of forensic science, including crime scene processing, forensic analysis techniques and suspect interviewing.

Participants in the forensic science-focused murder mystery will be sorted into tour groups, on a first-come, first-served basis, that travel from dispatch, where a crime is reported, to the crime scene investigation and on to the suspect and witness interview room. Attendees then will visit the forensic analysis labs, where a variety of experts will discuss evidence, including DNA, digital evidence, fingerprints, toxicology, shoe and tire

Center for Lifelong Learning hosts kids’ camps

With multiple camps throughout the summer, children will be hard-pressed not to find a camp to suit their interests at Athens State University Center for Lifelong Learning.

Most of the camps are over, but July still has six camps for kids interested in soccer, STEM or crime scene investigation.

“We’ve got dance camps, athletic camps, science camps and art camps,” said Center for Lifelong Learning assistant director Wanda Campbell.

Most camps are for children ages 8-12, but there is a session of Art Explorers for 5-7 year olds.

Campbell said art explorers will paint, draw and learn about the different mediums of art.

For science-minded children, Gross Science allows campers to learn about the funny — and sometimes smelly — sounds that come out of the human body.

“Gross science will focus on exploring slimy, smelly, weird things that happen,” Campbell said. “They’ll explore the digestive track and (learn what) makes noises.”

This is the second year

Students representing Criminal Justice programs at Kenwood High School, West Creek High School, Northwest High School, Stewart County High School, Hendersonville High School, McGavock High School and Springfield High School participated in the day long competition.

“I planned the competition to allow the students to showcase what they learned in class and through the club, and compete against students they normally wouldn’t get to compete against,” said Shoopman. “My students compete against each other all the time in the classroom. So this allows them to be challenged by a group that may have a different skill set or understanding of the topic.”

Students competed in
