This morning was the second day of our third session of SMU CSI Camp!
The day was filled with a ton of exciting science activities, and everyone had a lot of fun!
The morning began with a presentation by a real FBI Agent! The campers learned everything they wanted to know about the FBI!
After the FBI presentation, the girls worked with the SMU Police Department and learned all about fingerprint dusting.
After fingerprint dusting, the campers wondered what kind of fingerprints they had, so we decided to complete a fingerprint sensor activity. Through the fingerprint sensor, the girls learned what kind of fingerprints they have, and they also learned what minutiaes are!
After this, Detective Perez came in from the SMU PD and gave a presentation about women in law enforcement and more! Detective Perez showed the campers what she does to get in full uniform; she discussed what she carries on her belt, and the campers learned what all is carried in a police vehicle.
After learning about law enforcement, the campers were curious to see what our next exciting activity was. The girls got to extract DNA from strawberries!
To wrap up the day, we did an iris recognition activity!
Today was so much fun! We can’t wait until tomorrow!
