Pathways to Careers
Ever wonder how forensic scientists "really" help solve crimes? In this class you will learn how forensic scientists find out "who dunnit." Did the Butler do it? This lab-based, hands-on course will include latent fingerprint processing using black, gray, magnetic and fluorescent powders, as well as DNA search & collection, crime scene practical exercise, and much more. You will also have the opportunity to search for and properly recover suspected DNA and Trace materials using high-intensity lights.
Several “real” police cases will be discussed and the week will culminate with a mock crime scene investigation in which you will work together in teams and present your results from the crime scene processing to the class.

Discover the art of animation! In this fascinating class, you will learn how to make objects move across the screen. If you can draw, even better; however, even without drawing skills you can begin to make shapes and simple stick figures move. The key is to let the computer do most of the work for you. You will learn a bit of computer programming using ActionScript, so the User will be able to interact with your animation. Have the User guess numbers or names; make choices on what to do next; or just surprise the User with the next event! It will be up to you - the creator of the action!
