Mount Students Demo Forensic Science Procedures at Middle School STEM Fair

The Mount St. Mary's University Criminal Justice Student Association (CJSA) table at Monocacy Middle School's STEM Fair drew a crowd as Mount students demonstrated various forensic science procedures and forensic examinations used by law enforcement in criminal investigations.

Mount students fielded a variety of questions concerning law enforcement procedures as well as the importance of education and training that are required to obtain a career in law enforcement, intelligence and cybersecurity. Middle school students, parents and school faculty were impressed with the expertise and professionalism of the Mount’s CJSA students.

The Mount was well represented at the fair with Professor Athar Rafiq and a student manning a table on cybersecurity that also was popular.
