ONLINE WORKSHOPS FOR KS2

KEY STAGE 2
CRIME BUSTERS ONLINE WORKSHOP

YOUR STUDENTS ARE NEEDED URGENTLY TO SOLVE A CRIME AT THE HEART OF YOUR SCHOOL!
STOP PRESS:
“A theft has taken place at school, local crime investigators have been called away and as a result urgently require assistance from your students.”

Of course we are joking, the senario has been devised to form the basis of Think Forensic’s Crime Buster Workshop.

Sessions are hosted on line by Think Forensic’s specialist staff who are waiting to guide your students through each stage of the investigation.  Using a sterile kit, shipped out to you, bubbles will conduct a series of analysis to eliminate suspects and track down the culprit. The workshops are hosted online via a platform suitable for you.

summary of the session

An interactive hands on event aimed at stimulating an interest in science and promoting awareness around careers in Forensic & Crime Investigation.

The event will be hosted online by a Think Forensic expert who will guide students through investigating the scene of a crime.

To facilitate the hands on activities, a sterile kit containing equipment for students to use will be shipped to school. The kit will also contain evidence to be planted at a mock crime scene within school. Students will be divided into 5 teams of 6, each team will become a team of investigators with their own mini kit containing their equipment.

Online Workshops
workshop content
  • A visit to the crime scene – students will observe the scene and identify evidence, leading to a discussion on trace evidence, e.g. Lochard’s Principle (every contact leaves a trace), different types of evidence, roles & careers, health & safety.

  • Footwear Marks – casting and comparing footwear marks followed by a Q&A around the subject.

  • Fingerprints – developing, lifting and latent fingerprints from the crime scene followed by students rolling and classifying their own fingerprint patterns.

  • Hair & Fibre – digital microscopy looking at the morphology of hair, whether it is human or animal, ethnicity etc. Plus we will also be looking at fibres and identifying their origin.
