PVCC Hosts CSI-Inspired Camp for Kids

Posted: Updated:

Campers at Piedmont Virginia Community College are becoming crime scene investigators.

CSI Charlottesville campers learn how to collect finger prints, fibers, and hair samples, then how to document the evidence they find. Instructors say College4Kids courses use hands-on activities to mimic real life scenarios, so campers can try out different careers.

"The whole idea is just to expose them to different career opportunities based upon their interests. If they're enjoying things like programming or working with computers, or if they're interested in science and health care, and this class was we took off on CSI - the popularity of CSI, this is CSI Charlottesville," said Valerie Palamountain, dean of workforce services at PVCC.

The campers range in age from third grade to ninth grade but in the fall PVCC is offering two forensics courses to adults involved or interested in law enforcement.
