Information for High Schools
Because of the popularity of forensic
science in contemporary culture, we receive a tremendous number of
requests from high school students, parents, and teachers for tours,
interviews, and job-shadowing opportunities. Some of these
requests we can honor, and others we can't.
Tours - If you are interested in a tour
of our laboratory, please click here for more information. We can schedule tours on a
limited basis and must be arranged through a teacher at your school.
Public tours are also available at pre-scheduled times each month.
Job Shadowing - Job shadowing is
prohibited in our crime laboratory. Due to the number of safety
hazards that exist in the lab as well as the distraction created by
guests during routine analytical work, job shadowing is not a feasible
Interviews - If you are interested in
interviewing a forensic scientist for a school project, please
Laboratory Director with information about your project, the name
of your school, and the reason an interview is necessary.
