Crime scene investigation in your science class!

This forensic science workshop is designed to intrigue budding super sleuths who enjoy their science mixed with a bit of drama. Highly engaging, even for teachers! Your primary students work in groups finding clues via;

  • Fingerprinting and blood typing.
  • Facial reconstruction via computer and real models.
  • Hair and fibre analysis.
  • Fluorescence of oils, plant identification and DNA comparisons.
  • Latent image detection, chromatography and shoe impression casting!
  • Evidence collection and more...
Time is also spent discussing why crime scene are isolated from the public, why certain evidence is more valuable than others and why a clear chain of evidence is needed from crime scene to the eventual court case.

Australian Curriculum and NSW K to 10 Syllabus Links

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

Students question and predict by using curiosity, prior knowledge, experiences and scientific information with guidance, identifying questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically (ACSIS053, ACSIS064) predicting what might happen based on prior knowledge in an investigation (ACSIS053, ACSIS064).

Students plan investigations by:

  • working collaboratively and individually, to suggest ways to plan and conduct investigations to find answers to questions (ACSIS054, ACSIS065) 
  • suggesting appropriate materials, tools and equipment they could use in conducting their investigations and recording their findings, identifying appropriate safety rules.

NSW Science Syllabus Content

A student:
 
  • investigates their questions and predictions by analysing collected data, suggesting explanations for their findings, and communicating and reflecting on the processes undertaken (ST2-4WS)
     
  • recognises the importance and relevance of science and technology in their lives now and for their future (ST3-3VA)

Blood testing Which fake blood clumps the same? Blood types matter...
Footprint comparison Which suspect was outside the scene of the crime?
Dental casts Can you match the evidence to the right suspect?
DNA Who left a trace behind?
Latent imagery Oblique lighting can pick up traces of evidence...
Soil pH testing Soils ain't soils!
Digital microscopy Hair & fibre analysis
Crime scene simulation Discussion of how the chain of evidence makes it to court
Fingerprinting Fingerprints can be a calling card...
Oil fluorescence Different chemicals can glow differently under UV light...a clue perhaps!
