DEFIANCE, Ohio - Defiance College’s forensic science, digital forensic science and criminal justice programs will conduct a three-day overnight summer camp for students in grades 8-11 on June 28-30.

The Detectives of Defiance: Got Clue? camp will introduce students to crime scene investigations and forensics through an interactive criminal mystery. Students will learn how to search for and collect physical evidence such as fingerprints, shoeprints, and DNA; collect and analyze digital evidence from computers and cell phones; photograph and document a crime scene; interview suspects; and pull it all together to solve the crime. This exciting experience will show the young detectives what really happens “behind the scenes” of popular television shows.

The three-day camp includes supplies, six meals, snacks and two nights’ lodging for $170 ($190 after June 1).
