WVU's summer crime-scene camp targets teenagers
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Aspiring young crime scene investigators can learn the tools of the trade at West Virginia University's Forensic Science Day Camp this summer.
It's open to middle and high school students.
The June 10-14 camp is for students in seventh through ninth grades, while June 24-28 is for students in 10th through 12th grades.
Participants will learn about processing crime scenes and collecting evidence using photography, fingerprinting and more.
They'll learn about tool marks, footwear imprinting, DNA analysis, blood spatter analysis and trace evidence microscopy.
After they've been briefed on how to handle the evidence, they'll process a scene at the WVU Forensic Crime Scene Complex.
