Science Visit to the ‘Crime Scene House’ !

On Wednesday 8th March, a group of pupils had the opportunity to visit the Crime Scene House at Staffordshire University.  Once everyone had put on a special protective suit and been shown how to use the specialist equipment, it was time to investigate the crime scenes which had been set up by PHD student Janos.  Working in small groups, the pupils were taken to different rooms around the house.  They were first required to assess the risks in the room and produce a quick outline sketch and then it was on to the serious business of photographing, labelling  and collecting the evidence just as real CSI’s would do.   All of the pupils really enjoyed this visit and gained a useful insight into the work of a crime scene investigator.’
