Last year I got a bit of a break in June and had a week off work! The payback was we had 2 in September! They were the Introductory camps for kids from year 7 and 8. This year there are two again. The first was last week at Scotch Oakburn in Launceston! I went north, to Launceston, for the Wednesday and Thursday of the camp.
Oh my goodness! I live in Hobart and here I am in Launceston! 9.45 in the morning and this is the view from the Middle School at Scotch Oakburn! Cold but very pretty really. (please don't tell!).
This was the view when the kids arrived. The camp started at 10am. The Crime scene tape really does set the scene for children and parents!
This is the chromatography Lab and the hair and fibre lab!
CSI - our enviroment is so much better!
Lots of busy fingers!
They learnt how to take their own prints (inked) and how to lift prints. Some of the prints they lifted were very clear.
Blood splatter was part of the story, but that was upstairs - I don't "do" blood! The kids had fun though.
If you look really closely at this photo you can see the blood on the door!
This is James in the fingerprinting lab! Please ignore the football black eye!
Soil testing and "What is that Drug?" is behind him!
On Tuesday we have "The Big" Camp starting at Hutchins. This one is a 5 day camp and is for year 8 and 9, gifted and talented kids.
I am one very lucky person - I get paid to play!
