what are the best colleges offering forensic science programs and are any summer programs that would help me better understand what i would need to do in order to major/study this in college?

When I first started high school, I wanted to become a pediatrician, but as the years went on I became more interested in forensics. I want to pursue forensic science/ criminal science as a career but I don't know where to start. #college #forensic #criminal-investigations

Well you are asking the right questions and starting early is always good.
One of the best ways to start is online. Browse for summer camps that center around your interest. Also, Browse the colleges and universities that have Criminal Justice with Forensics emphasis and if any of them are within a days drive contact them and set up a visit. Ask if they will let you talk to some of the professors and even some of the students in that major.
This will all aid in helping you make the correct decision for you and your future.
