What an exciting semester it's been for Ms. Koester’s 8th-grade STEM class at Scholarship Prep Oceanside! Our Scholars explored the world of forensic science and welcomed a CSI expert, Ms. Courtney Hayes, to campus!

Ms. Hayes, a certified latent print examiner and crime scene investigator for the Oceanside Police Department, brought her wealth of experience spanning almost 14 years to our classroom. When it comes to tackling tough cases, she's truly a real-life CSI hero!

Throughout the unit, students were engaged in hands-on activities, immersing them in the thrilling world of forensic investigation. From creating crime scene blueprints to crafting 3D models, our 8th graders transformed into budding CSIs!

One student was so captivated by the CSI adventures that he's diving into the Oceanside Police Department's Explore Program! Who knows, we might have a future investigator in the making!

From crime scene mysteries to thrilling research, our STEM journey was nothing short of unforgettable. Thank you, Ms. Hayes, for igniting our students' passion for forensic science!
