NVCsi Season 7 is making a Come Back! Mark your calendar for Wednesday, March 8 from 9 am to 3 pm for the annual event.
Dr. Mary Zocchi of the Math department said “we are in the initial planning phase – this is a campus-wide event, held outside. Think of it like a science fair where all the departments and services can have a display about SAFETY, CRIME, INVESTIGATION, and RESEARCH. The connecting theme underlying the Crime Scene is math (since the funds are coming through the math department SAF allotment). The idea is that math is everywhere…you cannot escape.”
Mary said they need areas to either create their own activity or volunteer at the crime scene. Volunteers are needed to hand out passports, prizes and snacks.
Here’s a list of past activities and which group supported it.
