Springfield C.S.IMSA – Inspecting Evidence
A crushed can was found at the scene of the crime, surrounded by the shards of a broken vase. What was in the vase? Why was it so important to the perpetrator?
Our C.S.IMSA Investigators are designing an experiment to replicate the evidence to determine the approximate weight and height of the broken vase. Listen to their great explanation!
C.S.IMSA: Calling all Forensic Investigators!
We’ve come across a mystery and need your help to crack the case. As part of this program, participants will work in teams to gather evidence as they unravel the science and mathematics behind crime scene clues like finger and footprints, DNA, handwriting, voice identification and more! At the end of the week, teams will analyze their evidence, make deductions and propose their theories in an effort to solve the mystery.
Vital Signs: Is there a Doctor in the House?
This program will give budding medical students a general understanding of human anatomy through hands-on explorations of the heart, blood, bones and muscles! Participants will also engage in a fun and challenging bioengineering project that will allow them to apply engineering principles and practices to the structure and function of the human body.
BioSleuths: What’s it all about?
This program is for budding biologists who want to learn more about the world around them and the creatures within it. From bees to butterflies, to flowers and trees, to cricket chirps and bird songs, students will be immersed in hands-on exploration, and “buzzing” with excitement!
Students will be exploring insects and plants, and their interactions. We want our BioSleuths to use their problem solving and observing skills while exploring the natural ecosystems that exist everywhere – even in our own backyards. For example, many plants depend on foraging insects for pollination.
