British Science week is almost here, and we have two products that many schools have let us know is ideal for bringing science to life in the classroom.
Whether a school asks us along for British Science Week (12 to 16 March 2018) or any other time, what we can promise is that we have two engaging, interactive and enjoyable workshops that each bring science to life.
First at primary school level, we have a session intended to cover forensic science and the rule of law, in an age appropriate and stimulating way. We call this day "Investigation Skills for Schoolchildren" and more details about the day can be seen here. Activities during the day include DNA sampling, fingerprinting and searching; with the day culminating in the examination of a mock crime scene using all their new found skills.
At secondary school (and beyond) level we cover forensic science and the courtroom with our workshop "Police, Forensics and Court Training". This takes the students from the crime scene to the courtroom, where they get to act out a mock trial based on the mock murder scene that they are exposed to at the start of the day. As well as teaching them the role of various forensic scientists and other experts within the legal system, the day works on confidence building, public speaking, problem solving; and many other skill areas besides.
Whilst both days are marketed towards schools, they are each ideal for any children or youth groups of many different kinds.
We use trainers who are chosen not only for their backgrounds and knowledge of the subject area, but for their abilities to relate to the children and young people they teach.
Please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or to ask about available dates; whether that be for British Science Week, or any other time. For any bookings made up to 31 March 2018, we will waive the need for a deposit and will invoice for our fee following delivery - so you can see what we offer before you even have to pay for it.
