Leesburg -- Lee County Middle School students got a lesson in Crime Scene Analysis, and encouragement to study math and science.

 GBI Special Agents Bryan Smith and Mike Brooks taught the Middle Schoolers how to take fingerprints and other Investigation techniques.

The Agents stressed to the eighth graders in Mrs. Brooks math class that education is the key to exciting careers like theirs. Mrs. Aimee Brooks said "Science and math are some of those things that give some students a little bit of a hard time.  So if we can show them the way that it is applicable to their lives, it helps them to feel like they have a little more understanding with their need to know it."

 Teachers say the students are much more attentive, learning a science lesson from a GBI Special Agent.
