A couple of departments at Bethany College are teaming up to host a unique camp this summer.
According to the school in Lindsborg, the Bethany Criminal Justice and Physics Departments will be co-hosting a Traffic Collision Reconstruction summer camp this year.
The camp will cover topics such as how investigators are able to determine a vehicle’s speed and direction
prior to a collision using the laws of physics and mathematical formulae. There will be a hands-on session
during which students will collect and document physical evidence, and classroom sessions in which they will
learn how to use their measurements to perform calculations.
This will be an engaging, interactive learning experience in which STEM education is mixed with real world
The camp is open to area high schoolers (or home school equivalent) of grades 10-12.
The camp will be held from 10 am to 3pm, July 12 and 13, on the Bethany campus in Lindsborg. There is no cost for
students to attend the camp.
Those interested should call Bethany College at 785-227-3380 and ask to speak
with Melissa Blake. Applications must be received by May 31, 2021.
