Davidson County 4-H Camp focuses on science and math to investigate crime

Criminal investigations are not something people normally associate with 4-H, but recently students from the area attended a camp where they learned how to solve crimes.

Last week, Davidson County 4-H hosted students from five other local counties for a three-day summer camp focusing on criminal investigations using science, technology, engineering and math.

“The main thing is to introduce kids to forensic science and STEM education, but also teach them the potential criminal justice career fields they can go into. They can interview local professionals and learn what it takes to get into those positions,” said Matt Barber, 4-H and Youth Development agent for the NC Cooperative Extension of Davidson County.
