Education Workshops

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 2-5, 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 6th-15th 2020) 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.


Discounted rates available during British Science Week (March 6th-15th 2020). Please GET IN TOUCH with us as there are limited places available.

Here are some of the ideas we work with, but as with all our events, they can be tailored to your individual school:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
