University hosts CSI@CSU for high school students
Charleston Southern University will host the fourth annual CSI@CSU summer camp June 16-20 on campus. The week-long camp is designed for high school students grades 9-12.
Students attending CSI@CSU will complete classroom lectures, participate in hands-on crime scene investigation; work in small groups and individually. The program is taught by Charleston Southern University criminal justice professors, members of the Charleston Police CSI team, Berkeley, Dorchester and North Charleston police departments and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).
“CSI@CSU is an opportunity for prospective students interested in crime scene investigation as a career to work hand in hand with today’s local crime scene techs,” said CSU professor Alan Fix.
As part of the program, the instructors will stage a mock crime scene with assistance from camp instructors and CSU criminal justice students.
“A lot of our students, and campers, watch CSI and they think that’s how the real world is” said Dr. Marc Embler, during a recent interview with ABC News 4 Lowcountry Live. “There’s some truth to that, but for the most part they’re going to learn that’s it’s really not like television.”
