Forensic Science Workshop

On Thursday and Friday last week, we were lucky enough to transform classroom VW into a crime scene!
The Forensic Science workshops allowed children to practice skills such as observing, exploring and asking relevant questions.
A crime had been committed and it was the responsibility of each class to work together to piece together the evidence.  Our scientists had to tape off the area in order to protect any evidence that was found. 
Clues and evidence were  identified and interpreted. This included characterising fingerprints, investigating tool marks and other impressions, identifying hairs and fibres and investigating blood, bones and DNA.
