Edison Ford Summer Campers Visited by Local Law Enforcement
 
MYERS, Fla. (July 12, 2017) -- Campers at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates Forensic Science Summer Camp learned about bomb detection and fingerprinting from local law enforcement. They also met Officer Schulte from the City of Fort Myers Police Department Canine Unit and his dog Zeus.
A popular choice for several years, the camp teaches students about what police do at a crime scene, crime detection techniques and tips on problem solving. The law enforcement demonstrations build on what the students learn during the camp. 

The Forensic Science three-day camp has been very popular and fills up quickly each year. Other camp options offered at Edison Ford teach students about film making, robots, video game development, electrical engineering, physics, chemistry and art. 
Camps are for students in grades first through third and fourth through sixth. Students in seventh through twelfth grade are able to get experience as a camp counselor.

A few openings remain in the Smarts for the Arts camp that runs August 7-9. To register, visit EdisonFordWinterEstates.org or call 239-334-7419.
