Tiffin University to Host Annual Forensic Science Academy Summer Camp

Tiffin University will host its annual Forensic Science Academy Camp, June 12-16 on campus.

The camp is open to high school students in grades 9-12, and the minimum age requirement for participation is 14.

Campers will learn principles and tactics to assist in criminal investigations through chemistry and biology. They will also analyze real, recent crime scenes with coroners from across the country. Participants will work in small groups with field-experienced TU professors and experts currently working in the areas of crime scene analysis, fire forensics, blood spatter analysis, forensic biology and forensic chemistry. Additionally, campers will learn how to handle the mental and emotional challenges of these professions from current and past death investigators and coroners.

Some fan-favorite lessons and activities include in-person autopsies, fire forensic analysis, staged crime scene investigations, forensic anthropology, ballistics, blood spatter analysis and the role of entomology in forensics. 

“As always, we are very excited to host this program,” said Dr. Peter J. Holbrook, Provost and Chief Academic Officer. “Year after year, it proves to be a deeply enriching academic experience for both our participants and faculty alike. It is and will always be an honor to play a part in the shaping of these young minds.”

The cost of the camp is $749 per student, including room and board.  Campers will stay in a single, air-conditioned dorm room. Each camper can earn up to one college credit hour from attending this camp. Space is limited to 25 campers, so interested students are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
