Everything from CSI to ukulele lessons at McNeese’s ‘Kids College’

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A classroom looked like a scene from CSI on Wednesday.

"We're trying to use science to figure out what happened here," said a student.

Students used forensic science to figure out a fake murder.

The crime lab turned crime scene is part of "Kids College" and the "Teens and Engineering Academy" at McNeese. Both are summer programs for children taught by college professors and other teachers in the area.

Nearly 100 different classes are offered in dozens of subjects at McNeese. More than 500 children are expected to participate this summer in subjects like forensic science.

Parents can still sign up their kids for the many summer classes offered. Classes vary from ukulele lessons to cake-making. More on the full schedule HERE.
