Science Detectives: Crime Science Investigation at Cameron University

Science Detectives Summer Academy: Crime Science Investigation at Cameron University – eighth, ninth, and tenth grade “scientists” will better understand the biology involved in forensic investigation.  Students will collect evidence from a mock crime scene and learn how to process fingerprints, analyze hair samples, perform ABO blood typing, and complete DNA analysis (isolation - examination). Skills taught in a state-of-the-art molecular laboratory during this week-long COMMUTER camp will help students solve the mystery. Teams will present findings at the conclusion of camp. Exposure to health careers during a hospital tour, and Biomed exploration through Oklahoma Technology Centers enhance this unique opportunity.

NOTE: This camp is designed to be both educational and fun. Because it is a science camp, a lot of time is spent in the lab.
