Independence High School students explore forensic investigation program
“What we want to do is train you to be investigators, and a good investigator is nothing more than an effective critical thinker. Someone who can solve problems.” – professor Andrew Wheeler addresses students from Independence High School.
On Wednesday, October 20, a group of nearly 60 students from Independence High School visited WVU Tech’s Beckley campus to tour the school and explore the Forensic Investigation program. The students also visited the university’s crime scene house where they examined a mock crime scene, learned about bloodstain pattern analysis and explored the science behind fingerprint and footprint investigation.
