Crime Scene Investigation Forensic Science Program

DATES: **The CSI program is on hiatus for Summer 2017 and will return in Summer 2018.** 

This year there is an alternative option for learning about forensic science: the MST@MSU program is offering Forensic Science as a class option this Summer!


The CSI Forensic Science Crime Scene Program at Michigan State University is a residential and commuter program. The curriculum is intended for academically able students who are currently in 7th, 8th, or 9th grade (during the 2015-16 school year) and at least 12 years old. Students will be working in a university setting with professionals who work in the field of forensic science.

Forensic science is the application of science for the purposes of law. Students, through a variety of educational presentations and hands-on experiences, will learn how their acquired scientific knowledge can be applied to criminal investigation. Throughout the week, students will have the opportunity to apply their creativity and investigative skills working as a CSI with real crime scene equipment on several mock crime scenes.
