Wyoming Seminary Lower School students tour State Police mobile crime lab

Wyoming Seminary Lower School students in Lisa Iskra’s eighth-grade science class recently toured a State Police mobile crime laboratory and learned about state police crime investigation techniques. The students completed a unit on forensic science in which they studied how police investigators gather, study and evaluate evidence. They also ‘solved a crime’ using forensic tools and simulated reenactments and later conducted a ‘trial’ to determine the guilt or innocence of a suspect. Troopers Anthony Petroski and John Corrigan of the forensics services unit of Troop N Hazleton described how state police secure a crime scene and gather evidence. They also guided the students through a tour of a state police car and the mobile crime lab and explained the equipment in the lab and its use. During the tour, from left: Petroski; Courtney Sminkey, Laurel Run; Gabrielle Grossman, Shavertown; Megha Sarada, Dallas; Megan Obeid, Pittston; Lindsey Lacomis, Bear Creek Township; Alexandria Zaloga, Moosic; Jacob Schall, Hunlock Creek; and Corrigan.
