In March 2011 the LSI-GSA was awarded a outreach grant to expand their current CSI@LSI program to an out of town school. On May 27&28th the LSI-GSA welcomed Bella Bella Community School to the LSI to solve the investigation of Eve Hill. The LSI-GSA reviewed several applications from dedicated teachers in various remote communities in BC. After evaluating all the applications the LSI-GSA made the tough decision to invite 19 students from Bella Bella Community School to the LSI. (more photos viewable on our facebook page here.)
CSI@LSI is an engaging outreach activity where students are presented a case to be solved using real scientific experiments and equipment. Based on the television show Crime Scene Investigation (CSI), highly trained graduate students, post-docs, and staff guide students through experiments to help them collect evidence. Once students have worked their way through various stations they use deductive reason to identify the guilty party.
