Camp CSI Birmingham 2022

About: On the first day of camp, students are divided into teams and given details of their first case. Each team will secure a scene, survey it, diagram it, take notes and collect evidence. After the students process the evidence, staff will reveal the true facts of the case by reconstructing what happened. On the last day of the camp, students will question the suspect. There will be a mock trial where members from each group will testify about their evidence as expert witnesses and play the role of prosecuting and defense attorneys.
