College and Career Ready!
On Tuesday, April 25, thirteen AHS Honors Geometry students visited the SLO County Sheriff's Department Crime Lab. The students heard from several forensic specialists and saw the equipment used to analyze fingerprints and crime scene evidence. The crime lab professionals also gave great advice to the students about what they would need to do in order to pursue a career in that field. Thank you to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office for investing time in and inspiring our kids!
