CSI Detectives Camp: Explore Forensic Science

Long Island Science Center
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(189)
In this one week camp we explore different areas of forensics: fingerprint and hair analysis, chromatography, skeletal clues, footprint identification, tire tread examination and more. Students will use clues to answer the case questions.

Class experience

This class was designed to be delivered in a classroom setting and provides information that supports the following New York State Next Generation Science Learning Standards.
4-LS1-1 Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction. 
5-PS1-3 Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.
MS-PS1-8 Plan and conduct an investigation to demonstrate that mixtures are combinations of substances.
MS-LS4-2 Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships.
Crosscutting Concept: Cause and Effect: Phenomena may have more than one cause, and some cause and effect relationships in systems can only be described using probability. 
 9 files available upon enrollment
Students will need their case files and worksheets that will be posted in the classroom to avoid confusion as to what materials will be needed when. Students should have a pen or pencil to record their observations as we review the evidence. In addition, students will need: Day 4: Coffee filter (or tissue), brown marker (NOT a Sharpie), glass of water, pencil, tape. Day 5: Moldable clay
This class explores forensic science. We will be showing real human and animal skeletons on camera in order to show how skeletal structure can help provide us with clues.  We will discuss how we can determine gender, height, age, and cause of death with our human skeletal remains. With our animal skeletons we will identify what clues we can find about if the animal was predator or prey, bipedal or quadrupedal, and a carnivore or herbivore. On the CSI day we will be discussion a fictitious case where a person has been found deceased.  This day focuses on the physical evidence found including garbage, soil, and hair strands.
