CSI: Shadyside (Forensics)
Forensics is the use of science to support the law.  In this summer’s non-credit experience, students will have the opportunity to learn the techniques used by forensic scientists around the country.  Some of the techniques they will learn include: DNA fingerprinting, processing evidence in a crime scene, arson investigation, and trace evidence gathering.  Students will learn about the process of crime scene investigations in an open style lecture while the laboratory portion of the course will allow students hands on experience with modern forensic procedures. 

The course will culminate in a complete mock crime scene investigation where students get to use science to determine “who dunnit”!
