Sci-High CSI Forensic Science Events
We provide exciting CSI Whodunit Forensic Science events for enhancement and to support curricular forensic science. They can be tailored for all year groups in primary schools, secondary schools, sixth forms and colleges. We show forensic science all the way from the crime scene to the courtroom. Students examine the crime scene as Scene of Crime Officers in full kit of white coverall suits, masks, gloves and overshoes to locate and retrieve the evidence. They carry out a lot of forensic practical - that available includes fingerprints, DNA profiles, shoemarks, ink chromatography, document comparison, physical fits, blood patterns, weapon, mobile phone records, corneal imaging, paint and fibres. There is also police role-play and a role-play courtroom trial with students as judge, barrister, accused, forensic witness and usher.
We provide special events for BTEC L3 including a specially-produced workbook.
Presented by degree-qualified professionals with excellent communication skills, the events have highly engaging whodunit storylines, lots of real-world forensics showing what crime investigation is really like - and loads of fun!
