Sixth graders at Lovett participated in the fourth annual Forensic Science Fair. The fair was a partnership between the ACCENT program at Lovett and Jeff Franks, a former Evidence Response Team member of the FBI, and students from his Law & Public Safety class at the Clinton High School Career Complex. The ACCENT students are learning about 14 forensic sciences.
The fair gave them a hands-on experience of what they have learned so far through five stations. The stations allowed students to try on personal protection equipment, examine their own fingerprints, handcuff one another, practice diagramming a crime scene, and gathering evidence through photography. The students gain a “greater appreciation of what is involved in law enforcement activities,” said Franks. He hopes that the fair builds the students’ excitement about careers in public safety.
