At the Forensic Sciences Mentoring Institute (FMI) Summer Science Program, high school students spend 7 weeks investigating and solving a crime while learning how to be a forensic scientist. Students will analyze crime scene evidence based on actual cases including homicide, sexual assault and drug trafficking investigations under the mentorship of forensic experts. All FMI students learn how to test for DNA and determine the presence of drugs and poisons. Beginning in 2018, the FMI Summer Science Program will be offered at no cost to attending students. As always, admission into the program will be based on merit, which is determined based on submitted application, transcript, essay, and recommendation letter.
PLEASE JOIN US AT ONE OF OUR APRIL OPEN HOUSE DATES TO LEARN MORE:
The Open House will begin with a short explanation of the Summer Science Program, the requirements for application, and a brief Q&A session where we can answer any of your questions. Next, prospective students will head into the laboratory for a tour and exciting forensic science demonstrations! These demonstrations will show you what it is like to analyze forensic science evidence, similarly to how cases will be analyzed during the program. The three areas covered in the demonstrations are forensic biology, forensic chemistry, and forensic toxicology! Following the demonstrations, the Open House will gather for a final Q&A session and departure.
