Florida Tech Summer Camp Explores Forensics
– Blood spatter, DNA, fingerprints and psychological profiling. Such is the stuff of the forensic scientist and psychologist, like the enterprising law
enforcement agents who look for clues on TV’s “CSI” or “NCIS.”
This summer, high school students can analyze “crime” scenes and learn more about “WHY” criminals commit crimes at Florida Tech’s Florida Forensics Camp.
Campers can choose from three, one-week sessions: July 11-15, July 18-22 or July 25-29.
Activities include seminars, classroom presentations and competitions. Participants will work on solving a murder mystery designed to allow students to
apply what they have learned. Participants may also compete in an essay contest on capital punishment, square off in a forensics jeopardy game and
experience mock court sessions.
There is one full camp option, which includes room and board. This allows participants to get the full university experience. For more information, call

Florida Tech began the state’s only forensic psychology bachelor’s degree last fall. Marshall Jones, who has a background in law enforcement, is the
university’s program coordinator and summer camp director.
