The Science of Forensics for Elementary School Students

Registration opens March 1, 2023.


July 14, 2023 | 9am to 3pm
Rising 2nd-5th graders
Registration fee: $79 (includes lunch)

During this camp, elementary aged students will be given an overview of science and its ability to help solve crimes.  Students will engage in hands-on activities enabling them to explore the process of scientific discovery and the application of general scientific principles to catch bad guys! Ultimately, students will attempt to solve a case in which cake baking ingredients are analyzed to determine which perpetrator sabotaged a contestant at a bake-off. Additionally, students will extract their own genetic material from their cheek cells and create a necklace containing the DNA. Finally, camp will culminate in the preparation of liquid nitrogen ice cream.
