Education

We love to work with young minds, engaging them in the fascinating world of Fingerprints and Forensics in a highly kinaesthetic way. Our teaching and learning encompasses the National Curriculum and is differentiated across Key Stages 1-5, working in all types of schools and colleges as well as with groups of home educated children.

We encourage both teamwork and independent learning and can cater for any number of students from a class right through to the whole school. We know how difficult it can be to accommodate visitors in the school, so we will work around your timetable without the need to “collapse” it to cause the least disruption to your day.

We are often asked into schools for enrichment days, career days, treat days, new student days, during science festivals and British Science Week (March 9th – 17th 2019) or simply to bring something a bit different to engage the students.

We also cater for staff with our team building activities which are ideal for inset days. Great for team bonding with the bonus that you can take what you learn during the event and teach it to your students.

Our range of activities will be tailored to work with you and your school, meeting time constraints and providing the learning outcomes you require in a fun and enthusiastic way.

If you're looking for some fresh ideas get in touch and we will help you to bring science to life in your classroom.


Discounted rates available during British Science Week (March 9th-17th)! Please get in touch with us as there are limited places available.
CSI day - A crime has been committed and we are relying on your students to find out who did it! We will teach them all they need to know about fingerprint comparison and other forensic techniques to allow them to examine the crime scene and identify who the culprit is.
Fingerprint workshop - Students learn about fingerprints and each take a set of their own prints. Powder and lift finger marks and compare them against suspects prints to identify them.
Blood Workshop - Learn how we use maths to determine various aspects of the assault from the blood spatter left behind at the scene of the crime. A hands-on workshop using fake blood!
Shoemark Workshop - Here we look at how we can solve crimes by looking at shoemarks left behind at crime scenes. In this hands-on workshop, students learn how to make comparisons to determine which shoe left the clue and how we can link it to the criminal.

If any of the above is of interest to you and you'd like to book, or if you have a question or two then please Click Here to get in touch.

"...it was a huge hit with the children. They have come away with new knowledge and enjoyed sharing it with family and friends. It was the right mix of information and activities and alternating from one to the other kept the children engaged. It's been a pleasurable experience dealing with Diane at Forensic Minds. Form start to finish nothing has been too much trouble. She runs a very accommodating and polite company"
