The “FORENSICS: The Science Detectives” “camp” (June 12-23, 2006) at the University of Arizona is a preparatory course designed to be a fun, interesting, and exciting summer experience while exposing students entering the 11th and 12th grade to “real-life” career possibilities in life and physical sciences. The course is also appropriate for students entering the freshman year of college. High school students in the lower grades are accepted on a case-by-case basis (must demonstrate superior science grades).
The 2006 program will expand to incorporate focus groups on specific forensic disciplines and there will also be a group which will get general exposure to multiple disciplines in forensic sciences. “The Science Detectives” have two special squads, DNA Detectives and CHEM Detectives that will analyze various evidentiary materials.
