The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry offered a 1 week forensic science camp as part the new TU Summer Academy for elementary - middle school students. The camp gave students the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of skills like dusting for latent fingerprints and casting shoeprints. Students also learned the proper procedures for investigating a crime scene. The week culminated in their investigation of a staged crime scene on Friday. These enthusiastic students left already talking about next year's camp!
