Have you ever wondered how crime is solved? How can a single hair land a person in jail? How can DNA exonerate a person from a crime? These are some of the questions we will explore using the science behind forensic investigations. Students will learn how to process crime scenes, analyze hair and fibers, fingerprints, and documents left at the scene. We will look at some landmark cases that have shaped the way we process crime scenes. In this course, students will learn about forensic techniques used and applied at crime scenes. The content, while advanced, is challenging but created in a way that is interesting and engaging with age-appropriate topics for students. Register here.

Gilman’s Upper School is offering a Spanish Language Review & Preview for students heading into levels I, II, and III  of their language. In this summer session, students will get a review of some foundational language mechanics to set them up for success in their language classes. We will also talk about organizational and note-taking strategies for their language classes. Students will get an introduction to who they are as learners and will get some specific studying approaches based on their learner profile. They will come away with a language resource pack that they will use during the summer dates and that can serve as a resource throughout the school year.
This summer course is designed for:
1. Students heading into Spanish I, II, III, and IV who consistently struggled to grasp linguistic concepts and/or structures.
2. Students who did not meet or narrowly met the expectations required for promotion to the next level of Spanish study.
3. Students who are completely new to the study of modern languages.
