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
  • Biological and wet chemical methods

Does your child have dreams of building skyscrapers or bridges? At Structural Engineering Summer Camp at Hofstra University campers, entering grades 6-11, learn from Hofstra University Ph.D. professors who introduce the fascinating fundamentals of constructing structural elements, including columns, beams, cables and arches.Campers gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts of structural engineering from college instructors while studying great works, such as the George Washington Bridge and the Eiffel Tower.

Combine Learning and Fun
Short lectures will present not only the scientific aspects of bridges and buildings, but also the social and symbolic aspects of these structures. Hands-on exercises will enable students to gain a physical understanding of how structural elements behave. Workshops will provide students with the opportunity to build their own physical models of long-spanning roof structures.

Calling All Future Structural Engineers
At Structural Engineering Summer Camp, campers learn how structures behave and develop an appreciation for not only the scientific, but also the social and symbolic aspects of structures.

Schedule
Half the day consists of STEAM programs. For the other half of the day, your child is placed in a recreation group of 8-10 campers in of the same grade and gender where all campers enjoy lunch, instructional swim and recreational sports.

Note: There is a $50 surcharge per two-week session for additional materials and staff requirements.
