Forensic Experts

 

All year 6 pupils were invited to visit Christ’s Hospital for a superb Forensic Science day. The Theme was “Solving Crime with Science” and pupils had to work out who had stolen the Doughnuts from the Headmaster's office!
Pupils were able to enjoy “hands-on “crime scene activities which included learning about the processes and applications used at a crime scene such as fingerprinting, the preservation of evidence and the importance of evidence retrieval in a court of law.
The pupils were introduced to four possible suspects via some CCTV footage and carried out a number of forensic tests to collect evidence to back up their choice of suspect. In the Biology Lab pupils carried out microscopic analysis of hair samples and trace plant material. In the chemistry lab pupils carried out fingerprint and chemical analysis as well as residue testing for unknown substances. Pupils were then able to discover how unseen trace evidence could be detected using UV light, analysing glass and ink samples in the Physics lab
The pupils spent about an hour in each specialist area (wearing smart lab coats), completing an evidence booklet as they rotated between the subjects. At the end of the day they all came together to present their findings in court. DH pupils had produced enough evidence to prove which of the four suspects the culprit was guilty.
Pupils were treated to the fabulous marching band as well as having a lovely lunch. They were also rewarded with Doughnuts at the end of the day. A really exciting day and we hope to make this an annual event.
