Students will be introduced to the world of forensic science and will take a behind-the-scenes look at criminal investigations and uncover a series of "who done it" combining chemistry and biological current forensic techniques. Using molecular biology, campers will examine DNA left behind at the crime scene to ID the culprit. Participants will have the chance to learn from a Penn State Berks criminal justice professor and interact with scientists, investigators, and industry professionals as they learn and perform experiments to help solve crimes.

Campers are provided an opportunity to take a facility tour of Berks County's only academic human cadaver lab.
