CSI Blood Types - Thinkers in Education CSI Workshops For Schools. A chalk outline of a body with blood spatter patterns set the mood of this one hour activity.


Include up to 180 pupils per day

There has been a murder and four different suspects need to be investigated.  Participants will view the crime scene photos and work in teams to identify the prime suspect using forensic blood typing.  Every participant will learn the background science and the practical technique to conduct and analyse an ABO blood test of their own (using realistic simulated blood).  This vital evidence can help teams to eliminate the innocent but contamination or incorrect analysis may lead detectives to identify the wrong prime suspect.  Every player will compete in the expert witness courtroom quiz to find out if they can help solve the case.  And every session will have a different result - to avoid word of mouth!
