Jr. Tech of Cape Cod is bringing its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering
and Math) education to Wayland in May with a CSI: MetroWest
workshop for fifth through seventh grade students.
The 6.5 hour, Massachusetts Curriculum Standards-based program will be held on Saturday, May 12 from 9 a.m.3:30 p.m. at .
In the hands-on STEM workshop, students will learn the steps and tools used by crime scene investigators to solve crimes. Through simulated role-playing, the young investigators will listen and learn about the details of a mock crime scene, collect evidence and samples, and analyze the collected evidence. Eight lab stations will help the students solve the crime and include fingerprint and
hair analysis, DNA testing, fabric and dry-material testing, and more.
“For years MetroWest families who summer on Cape Cod have been asking us to bring our high-quality, hands-on workshops to the Boston area,” said Phyllis Russell, president and executive director of Junior Tech. “I’m thrilled that we are starting our expansion with one of our most popular programs.”
The STEM discipline skills exercised in CSI: MetroWest include Forensic Science, Clinical Lab Science, Mathematics, Critical Thinking, and Communicating Solutions.
The program fee is $195 and registration is online at www.juniortech.org.
