CARTERET COUNTY — Carteret County middle school students recently had the opportunity to explore crime scene investigation. The Career & Technical Education program offered a virtual workshop through a partnership with Carteret Community College and the N.C. BioNetwork.

Students participated in “hands-on” activities from their homes and learned about fingerprints, writing secret codes and eyewitness testimony. Students were able to interact with college faculty and learn about CCC’s criminal justice program and the Basic Law Enforcement Training program.

CCC Criminal Justice Department Chairperson Anthony Palbieke and BLET Chairperson Amy Snider-Wells were able to answer student's questions about careers in forensics.
