With the heat wave over, students from David Leeder Middle School in Mississauga enjoyed beautiful weather during a “Discovery Day” visit to the U of T Mississauga campus on June 22. 

The students spent the morning working in the forensic science crime laboratories with Tracy Rogers, director of the Forensic Science Program and associate professor in the Department of Anthropology. In the afternoon, they investigated a mock crime scene at the Forensic Crime Scene House on campus -- dusting for fingerprints, collecting evidence and uncovering signs of a “burial site”.
