TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — University of Alabama officials say spots remain open for a youth forensic science camp on the Tuscaloosa campus.

Middle school and high school students are eligible for the camp run by the university's Office of Archaeological Research in July. The camp offers experience dusting for fingerprints, examining blood spatter and other forensic science techniques.

OAR Cultural Resources Analyst Lindsey Gordon told the Tuscaloosa News that the camp is ideal for students interested in forensic science, anthropology, sociology, human biology and criminal justice.

The camp will have two sessions, July 8-12 for middle school students and July 22-26 for high school students. Each session costs $275. Students must register before June 30.
