WRV students take a crack at CSI

Students at White River Valley examined two crime scenes as an introduction to a biomedical course, which will last throughout the year.

The course, taught by Tracy Morrison, is part of Project Lead the Way biomedical program and is currently in its third year at WRV.

The crime scene, according to Morrison, acts as an introduction into the medical field to get students interested.

Students begin the course by hearing the narrative of how the victim died. They then view the crime scenes to view the evidence and begin to come up with ideas as to what exactly happened.

We talk about it all year and use things as an off-shoot to incorporate study skills, she said.

The crime scene will still remain in conversation throughout the year as students learn more.

Well do labs where they will investigate things like blood typing, blood spatter and basic forensics, Morrison said. Really what were trying

Area students explore new disciplines at university discovery camps

There may be a few budding engineers, roboticists and forensic scientists among the area school-age population after recent summer camps at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus.

Twenty-five area students participated in the new “discovery camp,” an educational enrichment program offered by the university’s Office of Outreach and Continuing Education for the first time this summer to engage students academically during their break from school.

Students participated in two separate week-long sessions in July: one focused on engineering and design, and the other on exploring crime scene investigation.

The idea behind the new camps, said summer youth programs coordinator Lynne Roy, is to introduce younger students to the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The university already offers a STEM career exploration camp to high schools students, she said, and the new discovery camps will provide a similar opportunity for middle school students.

“We want to get kids interested in STEM. That’s where

CSI West Haven: Students attend forensic science camp at University of New Haven

WEST HAVEN Crammed into a University of New Haven-owned residence at 196 Rockdale Road, 36 high school students from across the country put their newly learned forensic skills to the test, trying to figure out what happened at various mock crime scenes.

Crime Scene Investigation Academy is a week-long program that gives high school students the chance to gain hands-on experience in the field of criminal justice and forensic science. The campers spent four days learning about fingerprinting, blood spatter analysis, and crime scene investigation as a whole, and Friday they got a chance to apply the skills.

“We kind of walk them through the whole process of what it takes to process a crime scene. Both from the legal standpoint and the practical, and then we culminate it … with this big [practicum],” said Peter Massey, director of CSI Academy.

The capstone experience is extremely involved as the students not only
