For YWLA 6th – 8th Grade Students at the Frontiers of Flight Museum
Science – Technology – Engineering – Mathematics
This year’s Spring Break Camp will focus on forensic science and crime scene investigation. During the week, students will learn different methods of forensic investigation to solve the disappearance of the famous pilot, Amelia Earhart. To begin their investigations, students will meet Amelia Earhart through the Museum’s Living History program.
Students will participate in activities including fingerprint analysis, flight simulators, dissection, celestial navigation, and DNA extraction. In addition to these activities, the Museum will host various speakers that will discuss their careers in the fields of forensic science, search and rescue, and crash investigation with the campers. Students will create their own detective boards that display the evidence they have collected throughout the week and their theories on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.
