Calling all super sleuths! We need your help at a crime scene to crack a case.
This forensic science holiday workshop is designed to intrigue budding super sleuths who enjoy their science mixed with a bit of drama. Highly engaging, even for adults! Your children work in groups finding clues via:
• Fingerprinting and blood typing.
• Facial reconstruction via computer and real models.
• Hair and fibre analysis.
• Fluorescence of oils, plant identification and DNA comparisons.
• Latent image detection, chromatography and shoe impression casting!
• Evidence collection and more…
Time is also spent discussing why crime scene are isolated from the public, why certain evidence is more valuable than others and why a clear chain of evidence is needed from crime scene to the eventual court case.
This program is suitable for kids aged 8+ years.
