SMU CSI Camp Session 3 Day 3

Today was the last day of our third session of SMU CSI Camp.

As we were all sad that the great time at camp was coming to an end, we were also all excited to see what great science adventures the day had in store for us!

We started our day with a visit from Dr. Amy Gruszecki, a forensic pathologist. She explained what a day in her job is actually like. To our surprise, her job is nothing like what they depict on TV!

She showed us pictures of things she examines as well! The picture below shows an artery in the heart – the one on the left is good, and the one on the right is blocked!

As the day went on, we did forensic anthropology and a gait lab!

After this, the campers got to do a facial recognition lab! With this activity, our campers got to apply knowledge they learned throughout the week, and they got to learn even more!

We also had a visit from Jose Gloria and Ruth Spencer of the Denton County SWAT Team! The girls got to see all their equipment, and they even got to play with some of it!

Session 3 has officially come to an end, and we are so glad that it was so much fun for the campers! Not only did we all have a ton of fun, everyone learned a lot and got to apply their new knowledge throughout the week!

After such a great session 3, we absolutely cannot wait to start session 4 next week!
