A special event designed for visiting high school students. High school students are invited to join us for a day of investigation. They will have the opportunity to experience facets of law-related careers at the College, including a demonstration of real-life examples of how geospatial technologies were successfully used to aid law enforcement in providing evidence that was used to convict individuals. Following the workshop, students will be led on a brief College tour, where they will be given the opportunity to use their critical thinking skills to solve a hypothetical crime while visiting the Social Science and Justice Career Fair. Students will also have the opportunity to meet and talk with visiting representatives from law fields, including the FBI, police, crime labs and more.
Facilitator: Deirdre Garrity-Benjamin, assistant professor, Social Science and Geographic Information Systems program coordinator
