SUMMER CAMPS AT NORTHER OZAUKEE SCHOOL DISTRICT
Calling all Scientists in 5th-8th grade!
CSI, Team Northern Ozaukee
This intriguing and exciting course combines science learning with fun. Participants will use real laboratory techniques and materials, create theories about the “crime,” and test their hypotheses like scientists. They will experience science in an authentic hands-on environment that explains the use of evidence, models, tools, and techniques in science inquiry. Students will analyze hair and pollen samples, investigate fiber samples, study blood types, and learn about DNA profiling.
In the culminating activity, students analyze their findings and using deductive reasoning, point their fingers at the guilty party. Applying real laboratory techniques, students form teams to analyze race evidence, unknown substances, handwriting, fingerprints, and even shoeprints left at the crime scene. A fun and exciting class that is sure to spar your child’s interest in science! Grades 5-8, limited enrollment
