forensic 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (7/26/13) -- The Audubon Junior Forensic Science Camp held their Mock Crime Scene Investigation in the Museum Garden at John James Audubon State Park on Friday to wrap up their week long activities.
 
The camp featured challenges for the kids using a mock forensics lab performing DNA extraction and modeling, skeletal reconstruction, and identifying a victim from dentistry, hair and fiber evidence. Special guests included law enforcement officers from Kentucky State Police Post 16, who provided free fingerprinting and a guest speaker who spoke about lie-detecting.
 
“It’s great to see the excitement that the kids show each day,” Michael Gipson, camp director, said. “I feel like I’m doing what I need to do.”
 
Twenty-two students were enrolled in the camp this week, the second and final week of the event. Last week 17 students participated, Camp stated in an email sent earlier this week.
