WVU to help Boy Scouts with science at Jamboree

Posted:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia University will help Boy Scouts study the science behind their activities at this month's National Scout Jamboree.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports that Gerald Lang of WVU Research is overseeing the university's involvement in the event, set for July 15-24 at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in Fayette and Raleigh counties.

WVU will host three main attractions: a forensic science tent, a cycling station and a zipline.

At the forensic science tent, scouts will be led through exercises involving alternate light source applications, biometrics, bloodstain pattern analysis, digital evidence, fingerprints, footwear, firearms and tool marks. They'll be encouraged to think about the science involved in other activities as well.
