CSI Forensic Science Program
June 22, 2014 – June 28, 2014, grades 7-9

 

The CSI Forensic Science Crime Scene Program at Michigan State University is a residential program, running from June 22, 2014 – June 28, 2014. The curriculum is intended for academically able students who are currently in grades 7, 8 or 9 and at least 12 years old. All students will be working in a university setting with professionals who work in the field of Forensic Science.

 

Forensic Science is the application of science for the purposes of law. Students, through a variety of educational presentations and hands-on experiences, will learn how their acquired scientific knowledge can be applied to criminal investigation. Throughout the week, students will have the opportunity to apply their creativity and investigative skills working as a CSI with real crime scene equipment on several mock crime scenes.

 

Students will be housed in a residential hall on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. The program enrollment is limited to 30 students.

Math, Science, & Technology @ Michigan State University (MST @ MSU)
July 13, 2014 – July 26, 2014, grades 7-9

 

Mathematics Science and Technology (MST)@MSU is a two week residential program for academically talented students who are currently in grade 7, 8 or 9 during the 2013-2014 school year and are a minimum age of 12 years old. The focus is on mathematics, science, and technology, and applications in these areas. The goal is to match the intellectual abilities of talented adolescents with rigorous and challenging course work which provides enrichment, but does not duplicate or accelerate course work that is part of the regular K-12 school curriculum.

 

During the two weeks (July 13 – July 26, 2014) students will be housed in a residential hall on the campus of Michigan State University. Each student will be assigned a roommate and students cannot choose their own roommates. Students will also be placed in three different instructional groups, allowing many opportunities to establish new friendships and to interact with others in smaller groups.
