“The main goal is to introduce kids to forensics and STEM education, but also teach them about potential criminal justice career fields they can go into. They can interview local professionals and learn what it takes to get into those positions,” said Matt Barber, 4-H and Youth Development Agent for the Davidson County NC Cooperative Extension.
