Serious Study with Amateur Sleuthing

By the British Science Association, the CREST awards help students to tackle science with an investigative approach. This case study describes how Year Seven students at Downlands Community College undertook a 'crime scene investigation' simulation.

The activity allowed students to gain a bronze CREST Award during the day-long activity. Students demonstrated the project process by being involved in planning, gathering and analysing data and then presenting results.
