The Forensic Investigation Summer Program at Northern Michigan University is a residential summer camp that offers high school students hands-on experience with methods used by crime scene investigators and forensic scientists to collect and analyze evidence used to solve crimes. The curriculum is intended for academically able students who are currently in 9th, 10th, or 11th grades (during the 2017-2018 school year). Topics that will be explored during this program include impression evidence (fingerprints, shoe prints), trace evidence (hairs, fibers), crime scene documentation, forensic anthropology and more!
The summer program is led by Dr. Jane Wankmiller, Director of NMU's Forensic Research Outdoor Station (FROST), along with other faculty members and NMU students from related disciplines.
Please submit an application accompanied by a letter of recommendation from your science teacher or a school administrator.
