The following reports were written by members of Forensic Science during the second day of the program. Some elements may have been removed/edited for various reasons, but the text that remains is in the student's own words.

It was a fun day.


I had fun today as well. We made a Stella model of the decomposition of a dead body. Gross, but fun. We also tried to crack a code and tested the observations of other people as well as ourselves!


Today was still ok as we did some pretty cool things like the Stella program. I also liked some of the perception things but the thing with the investigation was not as interesting. It was still ok.


I had fun at this camp today... we learned about dead body decomposition.


I had fun. I knew mostly everything! I learned about maggots and decomposition.


Today we tried to figure out codes, but nobody decoded it. Then we acted like investigators.


This morning we made models of decomposed dead bodies. I think it is very educational but a little boring. I thought the code breaking part we learned yesterday was prety cool. I would like to learn more about that.

I liked that we could build the dead body decomposition model. I didn't like that it took so long. After a while it got sort of boring to me. I also liked that we could play the memory games that would help you remember things more I do believe.
