As homeschoolers ourselves, we have developed a program which has been attractive to a number of homeschooling groups.
The idea behind Crime Scene Camps is to expose children to an exciting area of science that is often neglected in traditional and non-traditional curricula because it crosses so many boundaries while rarely holding its own place, even at universities. Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) involves almost every scientific field, not to mention several fields in the social sciences and humanities (psychology, geography, anthropology, and history to name a few).
CSI provides families with a unique opportunity as well because it allows everyone to be inquisitive, whether in a prepared setting or simply when one sees something out of place in the home. Children who have gone through this program have exhibited some fascinating uses of what they have learned. Some adults have expressed interest as well due to the popularity of various television programs (notably CSI and its clones) which we even discuss at times to show participants what is done correctly or incorrectly in popular presentations of CSI work.
The enthusiasm of homeschoolers has led to a new way to offer CSI programs. Instead of setting up sessions for the general public and hoping that they coincide with homeschoolers’ schedules, we can set up sessions with a homeschooling group and avoid scheduling conflicts.
There are two general types of sessions:
