Unique science opportunity on tap from UVM
BURLINGTON — Curious about how the police process a crime scene or what happens to the evidence that is collected? Or have you ever considered joining the ranks of the Vermont State Police?
On March 10, students in grades 7-12 are invited to join in a conversation with Aimee Nolan, a detective sergeant with the Vermont State Police, to get the inside scoop. The virtual session, which will run from 12:30-1:30 p.m., is free, although registration is required at go.uvm.edu/howdidyou to receive the Zoom link information.
The presentation is hosted by University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H as part of its ongoing program, “How Did You Get There?” Past presenters in this career exploration series have included a television producer, attorney and veterinarian.
Detective Sergeant Nolan, who has a master’s degree in forensic science, will walk participants through how she got into her chosen career and what her job as a crime scene investigator involves before opening up the discussion for questions. She has served as a police officer in Vermont for 24 years and is an adjunct professor in criminal justice with Champlain College. For questions about this program, contact UVM Extension 4-H educator Molly McFaun at molly.mcfaun@uvm. edu. To request a disability- related accommodation to participate, call Rose Crossley at (802) 476-2003.
