We are proud to share that our CSI Camp program was recognized in Forensics Colleges’ post “Body Farms and Other Novel Tools of Forensic Education” for their ability to engage in a hands-on, fun experience led by forensic scientist and CSI experts.
Staff from the International Forensic Research Institute and the National Forensic Science Technology Center team up to present the annual week-long forensics program at Modesto Maidique campus during the summer.
This camp is intended for advanced middle school to college students who want to know more about forensic science, as well as law enforcement or scientific professionals who are interested in a quick overview of the topic without having to leave work to study.
At the camp, faculty members and forensic experts present information about crime scene investigation, fingerprint identification, forensic entomology, and courtroom procedure.
Many of the camp’s faculty also bring extensive experience from some of the most well-known organizations in the industry, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Miami-Dade Police Department, and the California Department of Justice’s DNA Laboratory. In addition to lectures, campers go on field trips to different locations, including labs and companies near the campus.
