High Schoolers Learn From Aspiring Forensic Scientists

Juniors and seniors from 10 area high schools will have the opportunity to work with and learn from faculty and students at the sixth annual Forensic Science and Law Workshop at Duquesne University.

The students will attend lectures and participate in labs presented by students and faculty from Duquesne’s Bayer School’s Forensic Science and Law program as well as the Forensic Science and Law Institute. Hands on labs will cover topics such as fingerprints, hair and fiber analysis, firearms and tool marks, and DNA fingerprinting. In addition, the participants will “work” a mock crime scene.

This annual event is hosted by Phi Sigma Lambda, the professional student forensic science and law fraternity at Duquesne University.

When: Monday, July 20 through Wednesday, July 22, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
