This hands on training classroom was designed to provide the student with an imersive environment bringing real world collection techniques to the student. In the “real world” cell phones and digital media are not gathered in a pristine classroom environment. Many times our students will need to collect media from the mud and water after an RCIED in theater. This hands on lab lets the students experience the collection of media from a water and mud environment. The students in this classroom will learn to collect, process, dry and then extract the data from the devices collected. This classroom really provides an eye opening event for the student.
