Discover Forensics

Event provider: Wigan and Leigh College

Event Fallback Image

In this master class students complete short investigations and test evidence using methods from the biological, chemical and physical aspects of forensics science. The results from these practical’s are critically analysed to determine the most likely suspect to have committed a crime, the concepts of uncertainty, error and the scientific process are discussed and linked to the criminal investigative and justice systems. During the activities students have the opportunity and are encouraged to discuss routes and destinations from the further study of science beyond school and college.
