Detectives Day

Earlier this week 9 Year 10 Girls had the opportunity to visit The Maynard School for a STEM Detectives Day Project Workshop.

The Detective Project workshops involved an emphasis on forensic investigation and provided a life-like opportunity to find out how 21st Century investigations are conducted whilst encouraging the girls to think about evidence-based approaches to science and also to life! Students learnt the need for sequential investigation, methodology, care, procedure and the use of incontrovertible evidence to support a theory which then has to stand up in court. The day also included activities such as fingerprinting, graphology and chromatography to provide a fantastic introduction to the work of crime scene officers, forensic investigators and the forensic procedure.
