ages 9 through 18 will get practical lessons in forensic
science as they conduct their own crime scene investigations
the second Forensic Science Camp to be held July 11 through
13 at the James and Sharon Walker Science Center
on the campus of Morningside College, 1707 Morningside Avenue.
Students will learn
how crime scene investigators use the tools of modern science
to solve crimes. Morningside faculty will offer instruction
in chemistry, biology, ballistics, fingerprinting techniques,
handwriting analysis, and a host of other applied sciences
in an effort to help students deconstruct a mock crime scene
and solve the mystery behind the crime.
The camp is coordinated
and supervised by Dr. Jim and LaVon Stroh, home-schooling
parents. Dr. Stroh is associate professor of biology and chemistry
at Morningside. Other Morningside faculty members include
Dr. Roland Stout, associate professor of biology and chemistry;
Gary Turner, assistant professor of mathematics; and Dr. Larry
Martin, associate professor and chair of the division of natural
sciences and mathematics.
for the three-day, overnight camp is $150 per student and
includes meals and snacks, dormitory housing, instructor
and all supplies. For more information or to register for
the second session, contact LaVon Stroh at (712) 252-0059,
