Forensic Science in the Classroom

101_2576The boys and girls in 5th and 6th Class turned their attention to exploring the world of forensics that is so commonly seen on our favourite TV shows.

Following a lengthy discussion surrounding the work and role of a forensic scientist in modern society, the boys and girls took their own fingerprints and examined them for specific characteristics. We discovered that some fingerprints had clearer outlines than others.

101_2579The children are looking forward to using some of what was learned this week in next week’s lesson to solve a mystery using the clues a forensic scientist would have at hand.
