CSI Kids Camp

BILLINGS -

Billings kids give Crime Scene Investigation a try this week at MSUB. Third through sixth grade students use science and math skills to solve a fictional crime titled: "Who stole the cookies?"

The week-long camp teaches kids how to analyze fake blood, check fingerprints, and organize evidence.

One of the campers -- Max Daly -- a New Orleans, Louisiana resident, is visiting his grandparents all summer. He said he's learned how to work a crime scene from the inside out.

"There are a lot of things to do outdoors, and lots of camps to look forward to," Daly, age 9, said of the Magic City. "And it's really fun here. I get to chill with my grandparents."

MSUB Continuing Education Director Laura Gittings-Carlson said the camp has been running for many years, and is one of the college's most popular summer camps.

"They get to do what they deem as adult things, like taking fingerprints and looking under a microscope, and really getting to understand the science behind crime scene investigation," she said.

The kids eventually worked as a team to put their evidence together, and make a case against a suspect
