British Science week is from 8 to 17 March, and we have two products that many schools have let us know are ideal for bringing science to life in the classroom
Whether a school asks us along for British Science Week (8 to 17 March 2019) or any other time, what we can promise is that we have two engaging, interactive and enjoyable workshops that 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 we have produced a short video about the day. 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 level (and beyond) 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 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.
