QJHS students get in depth look at Forensics Science field

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

It's not as seen on TV.

Students at Quincy Junior High got an introduction into real life crime scene investigation on Thursday. Danyelle Harrison, a forensic criminologist, spoke with the students about her experiences working with the St. Louis Metro Police Department.

The honors biology class has been studying DNA technologies. Biology Teacher Cheryl Vogler say those lessons are brought to life with Harrison's expertise.

"And then to have her follow up and talk about different cases and how she actually used that, that what they're learning in the classroom, then in the industry, would just bring that whole idea full circle," Vogler said.

Vogler hopes this will help kids decide on whether they want to take further classes in Forensic Science, or even pursue it as a career.
