Past Day Camps
The residents of Guadalupe are in great need of programs like the Dunes Center’s winter camp so that they can perform better in school, gain an interest in the sciences and explore the many applications of STEM topics as career choices.
Day Two: Casting Shoeprints part 2, Physics and Crime, Blood Spatter, Barcodes-DNA
Day Three: Chemistry to Analyze Evidence, Mystery Powders, Burned Documents, Digestion and Stomach Evidence
Day Four: Preservation vs. Decomposition, King Oscar/Body Farm part 2, Forensic Anthropology, Bone Identification
A key to maintaining return participants in the program is to develop new and exciting curriculum that peaks the interest in youth. This does take a considerable amount of time. On average, a 15 hour program takes 60 hours to complete the written curriculum and research and an additional 20 hours, to create the handbooks/lab manuals, test the activities and create product samples. This time does not include arrangements for field trips and/or partner communication to schedule programs and training of interns/staff.
The Forensics program was no exception to the development of a new and exciting program that piqued the interest of the community. Future programs will be scheduled as instructors are available and appropriate steps will be taking to deliver the program effectively for all age groups.
