Forensic Science Camp at Summer Academy 2014
Forensic Science • July 6-11
Campers are summoned to a staged crime scene to participate in fact finding and evidence gathering in the hope of solving the crime.
Through biology, chemistry, mathematics, and deductive reasoning, you will work with fellow campers to weigh your evidence and apply your findings in the quest for the culprit.
A field trip to an actual crime lab is included in this week. You'll share the results of your investigation in a public forum for friends and family on Friday.

Summer Academy Counselors
Hello everyone! My name is Mary Gerth and I am currently a sophomore at Saint Mary’s College and am majoring in Communications. I am from Hinsdale, Illinois. I decided to attend Saint Mary’s because it is such an incredible school. I wanted to surround myself with people who had my best interest at heart and wanted to see me succeed in school. My favorite childhood movie is any Disney princess movie!
Hi! My name is Carrie Dubeau, and I am a member of the Class of 2016, currently finishing my sophomore year here at Saint Mary's. I am so excited to have the opportunity to be a counselor with Summer Academy this year, I know there are amazing experiences to be had! I am a Biology major with a minor in Studio Art, and I absolutely love every aspect of these subjects. My hometown is Ladera Ranch, California...a small city in Southern California. I chose to come all the way to Saint Mary's because the community atmosphere that is on campus is unlike any other, and I knew that being surrounded by amazing faculty and fellow women would allow me to grow as an individual! My favorite movie from when I was a child is Disney's The Little Mermaid - You just can't beat singing and dancing to that fun music! I am so looking forward to getting to know the campers that will attend Summer Academy this summer, as we will forge many new memories together.
