Past participant

This is a unique opportunity for science teachers to work with highly experienced crime scene officers and forensic scientists to develop skills by examining scenes based on real crimes.

Though the use of reconstructions, presentations and practical exercises, you will work as part of a team of Crime Scene Investigators (CSIs) and apply your learning to develop lesson activities. Using forensics as a motivating context you can be confident that your experience will accurately reflect the work of professionals.

As well as teachers, technicians who support forensics will find this course useful.
