"Science Leaders: Do you want to make science ‘relevant’ for your students? We can bring 37 years experience, of working in the biggest forensic lab in the country, to your classroom with one of our hands-on workshops"

When did you last show your students how the science they’re learning is applied in the real world?

We bring science alive, by delivering a hands-on forensic science workshop at your primary, secondary or Further Education (FE) college.

With over 37 years of experience with the biggest forensic business in the country, we’re fully qualified to bring this fascinating subject to your students, and make it interesting and relevant. Here’s why you need to engage your students in science.

  • According to the Royal Society only 17% of 16-18 year olds took one or more science subject at A’level in 2009
  • In 2009, nearly 500 schools & colleges in England did not enter a single candidate for A’ level physics
  • Last summer 12,000 psychology students and 10,000 history students graduated. In the same year, only 2200 physics students and 2400 chemistry students graduated
  • Science is being left at the door, in preference to humanities, and subjects that are seen as being more ‘useful’. The good news is that forensic science has a huge following, deep interest and provides a unique platform to engage budding scientists, or just to make the teaching of the subject more relevant. Just take a look at this partial list of forensic related shows on TV :

  • CSI with spin-off versions for Vegas, Miami, NY
  • Criminal Minds
  • NCIS
  • Silent Witness
  • Waking the Dead
  • and a whole lot more
  • At Forensic Workshops we harness that interest and bring ‘real’ forensic science to your classroom, with a hands-on workshop, tailored to the age of your students, to show them how the science they’re learning is important and relevant in the real-world.

    Every age group can be catered for, with a focus on practical science at the younger end to a more ‘whodunnit’ approach at the older end, where the objective is to examine a crime scene with ‘forensic eyes’ to gather, analyse and piece together the evidence at a mocked-up crime scene in your classroom.

    The format is discussed and tailored to meet your specific needs. Details of what we could deliver to the different age groups are broadly split into the three categories below. Click the link that is relevant to you:
