Some Kentucky students will soon have an opportunity to do some crime sleuthing.
Marshall University forensic science graduate students and faculty will present a crime scene investigation workshop Friday for high school students from Fairview High School of Ashland.
The workshop is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Marshall’s crime scene house, located in the 1500 block of Fifth Avenue, according to a news release from Marshall.
About 46 high school science students are expected to attend the “CSI Huntington” workshop. They will participate in lectures, demonstrations and hands-on experiments in the areas of ballistics and firearms identification, latent print development, blood pattern analysis, outdoor crime scene investigations and digital forensics.
The workshop will be presented by Master’s United Forensic Science Association, a student organization comprised of forensic science graduate students in the nationally recognized two-year program. Proceeds from the workshop will go toward travel expenses to offset graduate student costs to attend the national meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences next February in Washington, D.C. All 36 forensic science graduate students will be assisting with the workshop.
“CSI Huntington” workshops have been offered previously as summer camps for middle school students and as a series of evening sessions to adults and high school students in the past.
Dr. J. Graham Rankin, professor of forensic science in the graduate program and faculty adviser for the “CSI Huntington” workshops, said the faculty and students are pleased to offer the workshops to area middle and high school students. For more information, or if your school is interested in scheduling a “CSI Huntington” workshop, contact Rankin at 304-690-4377.
