CSI Academy

First Session: July 21st - 25th (SOLD OUT ACCEPTING WAIT LIST SUBMISSIONS)
Second Session: July 28th - August 1st

What did you do on your summer vacation? Imagine being able to answer: “Dusted for fingerprints, analyzed suspects’ blood spatter, and cracked a cold case.”

The CSI Academy at UNH is like stepping into the real world of crime scene investigation and getting hands-on experience with the techniques and technology seen in TV and movies, but taught the real life way!

The program will include hands-on experiences, discussions, and laboratory activities including:

  • History of Policing, Investigations & Constitutional Law
  • Fingerprinting
  • Footprints
  • Tire Tracks
  • Tool Marks
  • Documentation
  • Crime Scene Photography
  • Evidence Packaging
  • Note Taking
  • Sketching
  • Blood Spatter Analysis
  • Crime Scene Investigation
  • Presentations

Students will receive a certificate of completion, which would be an excellent addition to a college application of resume.
