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 through 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 scenes are isolated from the public, why certain evidence is more valuable than others and why a clear chain of evidence is needed from the crime scene to the eventual court case.

Many thanks for a fantastic day last week. The Big Science Show got rave reviews from both children and adults alike.

Australian Curriculum and NSW K to 10 Syllabus Links

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

  • Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE050).
  • Safely use appropriate materials, tools or equipment to make and record observations, using formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS066).
  • Use a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and to identify patterns and trends (ACSIS068).
  • Scientific knowledge is used to inform personal and community decisions (ACSHE217).
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:
  • selects and uses a range of equipment, computer-based technology, materials and other resources with developing skill to enhance investigation and design tasks (UTS2.9).
  • conducts investigations by observing, questioning, predicting, testing, collecting, recording and analysing data, and drawing conclusions (INVS2.7).
  • conducts their own investigations and makes judgements based on the results of observing, questioning, planning, predicting, testing, collecting, recording and analysing data, and drawing conclusions (INVS3.7).
  • evaluates, selects and uses a range of equipment, computer-based technology, materials and other resources to meet the requirements and constraints of investigation and design tasks (UTS3.9).

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!
