University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum will host a five-day forensics camp for children in grades 5-8. The camp is scheduled for June 5-9, and will run from 8 a.m. to noon each day.
Last year, campers analyzed fiber and blood components under microscopes, dug for bones outside, dusted for fingerprints, and completed an education session with a forensic anthropologist professor to uncover who stole a museum artifact. This year, the theme is DNA Forensics – Alien Style. Campers will work with University professors, professional technology, and use real-world forensic techniques during their investigation. This summer’s camp will also include off-site field trips, college-level discussions, and problem-solving.
