    AWIFS initiated its after school forensic science club, “Club Philly Forensics” to provide  hands-on learning for youth who attend schools in various communities within Philadelphia.

    CLUB PHILLY FORENSICS  is intended to inform males and females in grades 5th through 12th about career opportunities in forensic science through  hands-on  forensic activities and discussions with forensic professionals.  Forensic science is a multidisciplinary subject that incorporates core science disciplines such as Biology, Chemistry,  Social Science and more.  Students will improve transferable skills such as problem solving, communication, critical thinking, collaboration and observational skills.

    Workshops are designed to meet the following learning outcomes:

    • Hands-on forensic science activities
    • College preparation and enrichment program resources
    • forensic science & STEM career/educational information
