Area youth ages 14 to 17 are invited to participate in fun, hands-on forensic science exploration at Parkland College next month.
The CSI Experience, an eight-day summer camp, will run June 17–27 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Note: Parkland College will be closed on Fridays during this time).
This camp is designed as an immersive mystery: During the two weeks, camp participants will assume the identity of a crime scene investigation character and will work with real forensic experts, law enforcement, and media professionals to collect and analyze evidence, find the culprit, and inform the public. Attending youth receive real-world experience with equipment used in the forensic and media fields. Lunch will be provided daily for camp participants.
Parkland’s CSI Experience will culminate with a scavenger hunt for missing artifacts and the presentation of the participants’ findings. Parents will be invited to attend the presentations, held on June 27 at 1:30 p.m. in Room D244.
Students turning age 14 by Sept. 1 are eligible to enroll in the CSI Experience. To register a student by June 12, or to learn more about the experience, visit parkland.edu/ceRegister or call 217/351-2235.
