Helping to Raise Attainment & Aspirations in Science
Objectives "Working Scientifically"
Our KS2 Forensic Science Workshop supports the New National Curriculum (Science) helping to develop pupils’ awareness of scientific enquiry through Forensic Science and the applications, techniques and authentic processes used within a Crime Scene Investigation by using CSI hands-on activities. Introducing elements of the Criminal Justice System at an age when it really matters, in addition to assisting in your pupils transitional development.

After 12 years of teaching, I can hand on heart say that the C.S.I. Forensic science workshop was the best educational experience my classes have EVER had! I can not recommend it highly enough. The buzz of learning, from start to finish was amazing! The children got knee deep in the skills of forensic science and left the school that day with a pep in their step, a deeper love and appreciation of science and to top it all off – a full SOCO outfit!

The Forensic Science workshops that we took part in during National Science and Engineering Week 2014 were a fantastic way to excite children about real life science! The children learnt the importance of forensics and were able to acquire many forensic skills throughout the morning as the sessions were so well planned and resourced. The attention to planning and detail by Jacqui and the team meant we were able to cram so much learning (and fun!)
We were really impressed with how much was fitted into the day and how organised Jacqui was with everything she had brought along. Overall it was a fantastic day and well worth the money. We would highly recommend it to other schools and teachers, even if you’re not focusing on crime and punishment. It gave many opportunities to work as a team and practise problem solving skills as well.

What an amazing day! We booked Jacqui to come to our school to deliver her full forensic workshop day to a joint group of Yr 5 and Yr 7 students. From the moment we started until way past the end of the day, the buzz from the students was phenomenal. The logistics of the operation are significant (imagine planning a six hour practical lesson for 80 students!) but Jacqui sailed through the whole thing with ease – it was a most impressive operation
