Deliver your own workshops
For over a decade, we've been delivering workshops to thousands of students across the UK, EU and the USA. Now, we're making our lesson plans and teaching resources available as downloadable bundles. Each bundle uses a forensic, crime and security science discipline to further STEM objectives in a high school or secondary school classroom (lessons are designed for ages 13+).
This workshop is a riveting introduction to the world of crime scene investigation. This short course covers the history of forensic science; crime scene investigation and processing; fundamentals of a criminal investigation, and a breadth of forensic techniques including fingerprinting, presumptive blood testing, blood spatter and beyond.
Unlock the mysteries of human remains with a new skeleton key: forensic anthropology. In this workshop, students will learn the principles forensic anthropologists use to identify human remains. Students will also discover the crucial clues creepy crawlies (forensic entomology) and the environment (forensic geology and botany) can provide.
Detect the secrets of the dead. In this fascinating workshop, students discover the art of the autopsy (forensic pathology). Then, they move deeper – into the blood stream and beyond – and learn about the science of poisons and potions (forensic toxicology): from ancient concoctions of arsenic to more modern homicidal brews.
Created in partnership with an FBI cryptanalyst, take students on a whirlwind tour of cryptanalysis. Students will be captivated by how this science has developed from the (now) shockingly simple methods of concealment from the past to the present’s unbreakable computer codes.
Launch into flight and discover the incredible world of ballistics and firearm examination as students discover exactly what we can learn from these weapons. We’re calling all budding physicists and mathematicians to put those skilled brains to the test as you use principles of these subjects in a way that you’ve never dreamed.
