Forensic Science Summer Institute

Can you solve the mystery?

Join one of our most popular programs!  On the first day, participants arrive to a staged murder scene. Teams of investigators will gather physical evidence, such as fingerprints, fiber and hair samples, in their quest to find the murderer. The teams solve the mystery by interviewing culprits, applying biology, chemistry, mathematics, and deductive reasoning.  Saint Mary's STEM faculty members will direct lab work as the teams build a scientific case to determine the culprit. This six day residential program is designed for girls interested in exploring forensics, biology, and other science related fields.

Participants will take a field trip to a police crime lab during the week. On the last day, participants share the results of their investigation in a presentation to family and friends.

Participants learn from Saint Mary's faculty and outstanding student mentors, develop valuable pre-college academic skills, participate in fun evening activities, make new friends, and experience living on a college campus!
