Year 7 Forensic Science Week starts on 6th December…
The objective of Year 7 Forensics week is to link some of the practical skills which they learned in their first half term to the ‘real world’ and potential careers they could pursue.
The Year 7 students had the opportunity to be Crime Scene Investigators during the week full of activities. The objective of Forensics Week was to link some of the practical skills that the students had learned in their classes to the ‘real world’ and potential careers they could pursue. There were also activities that focused on the diversity of knowledge, through to STEM careers and subjects.
The students will be given a ‘real’ crime to investigate and evidence to analyse in order to present a case against the suspects.
Ms Charlotte Dewhurst, Science teacher, said: “The week’s programme will aim to inspire the next generation of scientists with fun and participative activities. The activities will highlight how science relates to our everyday lives. The pupils will learn about taking samples, fingerprints and DNA to use as evidence and also about the role of the forensic scientists and Crime Scene Investigators.”
Ms Dewhurst added: “There will be lots of exciting activities happening throughout our school. We are very keen to inspire and engage the students in the wonder and excitement of Science.”
