24/6/2013. Students from all over Ireland spent an exciting time at the University of Limerick Science and Engineering Summer Camp. In one of the activities at the week-long camp, the students performed a crime scene analysis re-enactment with the assistance of Henry Street Garda Station Investigation Division. The students used cutting edge science to solve crimes by identifying the guilty suspects in both a drug smuggling and bomb related incidents. The students discovered the presence of cocaine on one suspect, the presence of powder potentially used in making explosives on another and a third suspect was identified through DNA testing. Upon completion of the crime scene investigation, the Garda Investigation Division gave the students a full briefing on the forensic science investigations successfully carried out by their teams. In our photograph above are students Eimear O'Reilly, Ardnacrusha and Brian McMahon, Ennis.
