From July 9 to 13, 2012, BCIT will be the scene of a murder mystery. The blood and body may be fake, but the techniques used to solve the crime will be very true to life. Our CSI Student Academy is held every year to give local high school students an idea of what life is like as a forensic investigator. This year, students from grades 11-12 will learn how to apply real forensic techniques to things like knots, fingerprints, video analysis, and of course, DNA. At the end of their week of training, these students will apply their new skills to a murder mystery right here at BCIT. They will use what they learn to find clues, and then put them all together to discover the killer.
