Students at "CSI: AMSE" in Oak Ridge (Tenn.) examined a mock crime scene and collected the
evidence. The students were participating in a CSI summer camp at the American Museum of
Science and Energy. Many such camps are now available for middle and high school students.
But a CSI camp in Knoxville in 2004 for ages 9-11 was so popular that a three-day camp for
ages 6-8 was offered in 2005. Some camps integrate law-enforcement sources into the
experiences. A camp in Aug., 2005 by the South Burlington, Vt., recreation and police
departments included field trips to a crime lab. An overnight camp at Waynesburg College
(Penn.) in July, 2005 for high schoolers had a demonstration by a bomb and arson unit of the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

According to the site, “Students will first observe and record how various factors influence the
development of an insect‟s life cycle using insects that are collected from a source of pork that
you provide. They will then apply this information to a crime scene scenario in order to estimate
the time of death, if the body was moved, possible suspect/victim interactions by identifying
each species, and create a timeline for the sequence of appearance for each species found on the
body. The kit comes with a set of 52 forensic insect identification cards, enough materials for
eight lab groups, a teacher‟s guide and student copymasters.”

This electronic facial reconstruction/digital recognition lab contains a database of almost 4,000
facial features. The selected features are automatically blended together, making the picture look
just like a photograph. The software also has a game feature with multiple difficulty levels that
presents users with a picture and then asks them to re-create it from memory.

Science Kit & Boreal Laboratories, “One Bite Out of Crime Lab Activity”
URL: http://sciencekit.com/category.asp_Q_c_E_595447
According to the site, “students will make a cast of their own upper jaw, learn to identify teeth
placement, make dental charts, learn the metric analysis of a bite mark, and match dental charts
with an unidentified body to provide identification. The kit contains enough materials for six
groups of students, an instructor manual, student and assessment manuals.”
