4-H Investigates

July 27 - 29 ~ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Ages: Grades 6 - 8
Cost: $35 ~ Limit: 5
Scholarships may be available.

Who killed Henry Ward? Participants will become detectives and determine who killed Henry Ward in a hit-and-run car accident almost 100 years ago. To solve this crime, you will utilize various techniques including blood typing, forensic anthropology, fingerprint analysis, impression analysis for tires and shoes, hair analysis, blood spatter and DNA evidence. Join us as we travel to East Wilkes Middle School to learn about forensic science and play the role of a CSI detective!

Space is limited and preference will be given to youth who have not participated previously. (Parents, be advised that field trips will include the Surry County Jail, a funeral home and the Elkin Animal Diagnostics Lab.) Transportation, lunch and snacks are provided. We will meet at the County Office Building (90 S. Main St.) parking lot each morning at 8am.

Registration Deadline: Friday, June 25th
