Join us this summer and discover a hands-on learning experience that will inspire creativity and imagination. Daily projects and explorations in the topics of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) will supply our future designers and builders with the inspiration to complete a large challenge by the end of camp.
Become a member of the Wyoming Seminary C.S.I. team and explore actual techniques used in the field of forensic science such as fingerprinting, DNA analysis, chromatography and blood typing, all of which will be examined in a laboratory setting. The week of STEM based activities will conclude with solving a mystery using the techniques learned throughout the week, as well as a fun geocaching challenge.
