Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University’s Forensic Science Academy will host its summer camp on June 21-24.

TU’s Academy is for high school students in grades 9 through 12.

Campers will work in small groups with high-level TU professors who have experience in crime scene analysis, secret service detail, forensics and criminal justice. They will learn principles and tactics to assist criminal investigations through chemistry, biology and law.

Activities included in the camp are staged crime scene investigative processes, collection of evidence through autopsies, forensic anthropology, blood spatter analysis, fire forensics, ballistics and courtroom testimony.

Students will also tour a medical center, write investigatory reports, take part in the President John F. Kennedy Shot Sequence Competition and learn about forensic science careers.

“TU’s Forensic Science Academy is a great opportunity for high school students to explore multiple science and medical processes in the investigation, collection and preservation of evidence in criminal trials,” said Dr. Joyce Hall-Yates, Vice Provost and Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. “Students will be able to participate in high level laboratory and learning experiences to connect academic knowledge to actual careers.”

The cost of the camp is $749 per student, including room and board. Campers will stay in Craycraft Residence Hall and can select either a single or a double room. Meals will be provided, and COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed during the camp. Each camper will receive one credit hour of work for completion of the academic curriculum.

Space is limited to 20 campers, so interested students are encouraged to register as soon as possible. For more information and registration, visit
