Does your child have a future as a bioengineer or crime scene investigator? At Bioengineering - Forensic Science Camp, kids, entering grades 6-10, can explore their career dreams while learning from Hofstra University Ph.D. professors. They’ll gain a fascinating glimpse into how bioengineers are tackling various diseases and how forensic scientists obtain vital information used in crime scene investigations. During the nine-session summer camp, participants participate in a hands-on environment in a state-of-the-art University laboratory. They’ll learn fundamentals of bioengineering and crime scene investigation, including:
  • Stem cells and tissue engineering
  • Heart dissection and cardiac mechanics
  • Vertebrate histology
  • Blood typing, hair and fiber analysis
  • Fingerprinting
  • Blood splatter analysis
  • Paper chromatography ink analysis
  • Crash scene investigation
  • And much more!
Investigate a Future Career Path
Bioengineering – Forensic Science Camp gives boys and girls a valuable introduction into a future career in science, medicine or criminal justice. Camp participants gain hands-on experience in bioengineering which will develop abilities to apply the scientific method and analyze data in a biomedical context. They’ll also receive an introduction to fundamentals of forensic science in a crime scene-oriented format.

Short lectures will present a basic overview followed by hands-on laboratory work which includes the use of the Bioengineering and Forensic laboratories on the Hofstra campus. Campers will learn how to use a range of scientific tools and techniques, including:
  • Microscopes
  • Dissection kits
