Proven 2 Inspire Educate & Engage
Helping to Raise Aspirations & Attainment in Science
To develop pupils’ awareness of scientific enquiry through Forensic Science and the applications, techniques and authentic processes used within a Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) hands-on workshop. Introducing elements of the Criminal Justice System at an age when it really matters, in addition to assisting in transitional development, supporting the introduction of the new National Science Curriculum.
So what are the Teachers in Manchester saying about our workshops?

Once again can I just say a huge thank you from me to you and Asha for organising and leading the most amazing day ever! To see 120 children on task from 9.00am to 3.00pm was just fantastic, especially as there was a whole range of ages and abilities in one hall – no mean feat! In the words of our school secretary ‘In the 24 years I’ve worked at this school, we’ve never had a day as good as this!’ The children were motivated, enthusiastic and so keen to learn and apply the techniques you showed them. These are some quotes from the children I interviewed today:
‘It’s a good way to learn Science . . . . it is more interesting when you’re doing it’.
‘I really enjoyed using the different equipment and dressing up as a CSI investigator. That was really cool’.
‘I learnt that you have to wear the white suits to prevent your DNA getting mixed up with other evidence. I didn’t know that before’.
‘I loved it because it was really interactive’.
‘It’s a lot more complicated than what you see on the TV CSI!!’
Hope these are useful. The children have been buzzing all day today too telling me about the things they enjoyed. I’m so glad it was such a success and there is no doubt about us asking you back next year. Thank you so much Jacqui

Our children really enjoyed the full day experience with Pulse. They were very hands on and gripped from the very beginning. All resources were well prepared and the children enjoyed using new and exciting equipment. One child said “It’s the best day ever I’ve really enjoyed it!” I would thoroughly recommend Jacqui for a unique scientific experience for KS2 children. Her demonstration on E-Safety was particularly useful to our children. Jacqui was friendly yet very professional, we enjoyed having her at our school and look forward to her coming again!
