Dead on Time - The Forensic Science Thriller for Critical Thinkers in STEM:
Forensic Science Days are some of the most popular events run by schools – so to ensure ours stands out and offers something extraordinary, we have combined the best forensic equipment and the latest techniques with a truly thrilling storyline.
This carefully structured experience encourages students to apply a multitude of cross-curricular skills with cutting-edge science techniques. We give participants a taste of real-life forensics together with the opportunity to solve a mysterious death.
Pupils will need to apply their best problem solving skills as they uncover twists, turns and shock revelations in a dramatic film-like mystery.
Teams of students harvest, process and analyse the evidence as a CSI-like unit. The question is; can the scientific findings help their detectives solve the case? They will learn techniques from the beginnings of forensic science right through to DNA fingerprinting in order to reach a conclusion that fits the evidence. Will your teams ensure justice is done?
