Forensic Science: Can you solve the mystery?

Overview
Ages
Locations

A crime has been committed and it is the responsibility of each class to work in teams to piece together the evidence. 

Once inside our crime scene our young investigators must tape off the area in order to protect any evidence that may be found. Clues and evidence must be identified, collected, interpreted and analysed. This includes finding, developing and characterising fingerprints, investigating tool marks and other impressions, identifying hairs and fibres and investigating blood, bones and DNA.

The context of a scientific investigation brings science to life and stimulates interest at a young age. Schools can incorporate our Forensic Science Workshops into a memorable school Science Week. The workshop allows children to practice Science Key Stage One and Two skills such as observing, exploring and asking questions.
