Some kids in Jacksonville got a hands-on look at the science behind solving crimes Thursday.
Sixth graders at Hunters Creek got a crash course in crime scene investigation Thursday. Agents from Camp Lejeune's Naval Criminal Investigative Service and Criminal Investigations Division visited the school to show students the science behind solving crimes.
Students saw how NCIS investigators use different lights to reveal things that can't be seen by the naked eye. CID agents showed the students how to find, lift and compare finger prints. A favorite among students like Gabriela Iglesias-Garcia.
"We used this dust stuff. and we got to use the actual brushes they used and they took people's finger prints and put them on a card," said Iglesias-Garcia.
School Liaison Officer, Julie Fulton says the presentations are a great way of showing students how what they're learning in class applies to the real world.
"It sort of gives the kids the chance to see the excitement behind the math and the science and the technology. And so they can start to envision that they may want that for their career path," said Fulton.
Southern Methodist University sponsored the "CSI for a day camp". This was the second session for the camp in the United States.
