STAPLES -- The Staples campus of Central Lakes College on Dec. 7 invited high school juniors and seniors to CSI Day to investigate careers for students in industry.
CLC's Photographic Imaging Technology students created a room full of realistic crime scenes, complete with three Jane Does. Playing the dead-body roles were a trio of North Dakotans -- Stacey Wiseman of Cooperstown, Elizabeth Phelps of Cavalier and Kari Matejeck of Wahpeton.
Each guest was asked to perform a task often associated with crime scene investigation, and a CLC student photographed the interaction. Digital images of the guests were downloaded to laptops and printed, so the high school students received a personalized glossy record of the activity.
In Communication Art and Design, CLC students paired with the high school guests for a session using digital imagery, design software and printers to create an advertisement featuring portraits of each high school student.
Other career education programs at Staples that offered activities and interaction with instructors were Robotics, Mechanical Drafting and Design, Machine Tool Technology, Diesel and Heavy Equipment.
High school students at CSI Day came from Brainerd, Pillager, Pequot Lakes, Pine River-Backus, Park Rapids, Menahga, Nay-Ah-Shing, Carlton and Monticello.
Another CSI Day is proposed to be held in the spring.
