We work with young minds to engage them in the fascinating world of Fingerprints and Forensics, bringing science to life in the classroom in a highly kinaesthetic way. Our teaching and learning encompasses the National Curriculum and is differentiated across Key Stages 1-5.
We encourage both teamwork and independent learning and can cater for any number of students. 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.
Each event will be tailored to your requirements and can be a half or full day depending on your needs and budget. Here are some ideas:
CSI day - A crime's been committed and we are relying on your students to find out who did it! We will trach 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.
Hair and Fibre Workshop - use digital microscopes to analyse hairs and fibres and how they are used to solve crimes.
Casting Thumbs - Can be added to a fingerprint workshop.
Make a Fingerprint Keyring - Can be added to a fingerprint workshop.
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!
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.
Shoes and Tool Marks Workshops - Cast shoe and tool marks and use microscopic examination to analyse them.
(please note that in order to differentiate between the varying age groups some of the delivery will be age specific and may not suit younger key stages)
We offer rates based on Key Stage groups as our delivery is differentiated between age groups and below is a guide for our typical event per day, half day and workshop:
