HOUSTON — FBI Crime Scene Investigators hit the classrooms to show off the science behind solving crimes.

The Dare to Dream Program made it possible for kids from all over HISD to get their hands on training on how to put the bad guys behind bars.

“It's not only about putting the bad guys in jail, but it's also about exposing young people to various careers inside law enforcement and inside the FBI,” FBI agent Perrye Turner of the Houston FBI Field Office.

“They have their mobile command station, finger print lifting, different light sources, just different investigatory processes that the kids learn about and they're also encouraged to consider careers in the FBI because in order to be in the FBI you have to be a stellar individual, you can not fall off the path,” Director Andrea Mosley of the Dare to Dream program said.

Now picking a career is a long way off for most of these kiddos, but they loved getting to see an up-close and sometimes disgusting look at what it takes to be a CSI.

With so much to see and do, maybe… just maybe… one of these dreamers will look to wear the badge someday in the not too distant future.
