NYSF 2017 participants who are interested in chemistry and biology were treated to a unique visit at the Canberra Institute of Technology's Forensic Science labs during the program.
The CIT visit is a favourite with NYSF participants because it gives a very 'real life' experience of what a crime scene examiner may come up against on the job.
They also were able to spend time with students and teachers at the CIT teaching facility and gain a better understanding of the pathways through forensic science work, and the qualifications required. The CIT course is for people who like a hands-on work environment, while training in first-class facilities with links to national and international providers..
