P13: Fun with forensic chemistry

Al Hazari (University of Tennessee, USA)

“Fun with Forensic Chemistry” is a very popular summer camp for middle school students offered by the presenter who teaches at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  More ‘body’ has just been added to the camp curriculum!  This is a result of the extensive experience gained from attending the 2009 Forensic Science Workshop sponsored by CWCS.  New experiments for analyzing a variety of forensic evidence have been added and several activities using college-level scientific instruments (NMR, MS and IR) have been introduced.  All have been well received by the campers as well as by the teaching staff (undergraduate and graduate students, professors, post-docs, and local school teachers).  This talk will provide an overview of the new and improved camp curriculum, including the benefits and the effectiveness of the added experiments and activities.
