Forensic Workshops For Secondary Schools – KS3-4

Learn How Science Is Applied In The Real World

With older students there’s much more scope to delve into the science, introduce case examples where techniques have been used, and deliver more ‘recognisable’ forensic science. Using examples from recent cases in the media and dissecting the forensic case against a suspect provides current interest, whilst grounding the science. Workshop options could include:

  • The theory and practice behind the most talked about forensic evidence type in the world, including an assessment of the maths behind declaring a DNA-match, brought to life with examples of famous cases where this evidence type has been used.

  • The identification, examination, analysis and interpretation of the most common forensic evidence types found in ‘crimes against the person

  • The theory and practice of evidence recovery, preservation and analysis using the latest scientific methodologies and technology. These would include evidence types such as footwear, fibres, blood, ballistics, and toolmarks.

  • Bespoke lectures by subject matter experts to A’level Biology, Chemistry, Physics and IT classes on how each scientific discipline is applied to different types of forensic problems using real case examples.

  • …for post GCSE students see the section on FE Colleges.

The emphasis for this group of students, who will have a much better grounding in science, is to deliver the theory on which forensic evidence is analysed, alongside the practice through the use of real-live examples from recent investigations in the UK and abroad. The workshops still maintain the practical elements, but shift rapidly through to emphasising the scientific basis of all the different applications.
