As part of our World of Work Week activities taking place, we were fortunate to have a Forensic Scientist come in to school to work with some of the children.
Their task was to collect all the forensic evidence from a ‘crime scene’ across several locations in the school grounds using a variety of methods. Once dressed in their protective clothing, then the forensic investigation could begin.
As you can see from the photographs, the investigation was very thorough; from taking moulds of footprints, to finger printing etc, all whilst documenting the process and gathering photographic evidence.
As if the forensic science wasn’t exciting enough, we even had a reporter from BBC East Midlands Today filming for the local news as part of our World of Work week!
