About Forensic Med
Medics will journey into a different area of medicine where doctors and scientists specialize in identifying and analyzing microscopic clues to help solve crimes. Think of them as doctor detectives!
Junior Medics will explore forensic pathology, odontology (teeth), entomology (insects), anthropology (bones) as well as DNA, blood basics and dactyloscopy (fingerprints). Throughout the week, Medics will be presented with team challenges where they will use their problem solving skills and attention to detail to successfully complete each activity. At the end of the week they use all of their skills to solve a non-violent crime. There may even be a few escape room type challenges!
Mini Medics will be exploring bugs, nature, genetic traits in animals and humans, fingerprints, footprints, scat and owl pellets then use their observational skills to solve non-violent crimes.
Note: Content and activities have been customized for each age group and are not intended to be scary. Every effort has been made to present the information and activities in age appropriate, kid friendly ways but if your child is particularly sensitive, our Discover and Explore camps would be a better fit.
