Year 5 Forensic Science Workshop

Friday 27 May 2016

On Wednesday 25 May, Year 5 took part in a Forensic Science Workshop and solved the crime of ‘Dr Bates’ stolen lab coat’. In the first session the girls, including five pupils from Nash Mills C of E Primary School, learnt a number of key skills that would enable them to solve the crime. These included fingerprint lifting and analysis.

In the second session, they were presented with a crime scene. The group had to collect, analyse and present evidence in order to gain further information in order to identify the culprit. As a consequence of logical and critical analysis of the evidence, Mr Lloyd was eventually caught and arrested for his crime!
