Last Thursday, the Y11 pupils from Stamford School enjoyed an afternoon of forensic investigations in true CSI Stamford style! The boys worked in groups of 3 to collect evidence surrounding the murder of Rev. Goodman, who was the body at the bottom of the stairs.
Evidence was taken from three suspects and the pupils had to carry out five forensic activities to ascertain who the culprit was. The range of forensic investigations were blood analysis, gel electrophoresis and DNA fingerprinting, entomology as well as observing fibres underneath the microscope.
Pupils got to spend time analysing the crime scene and identifying possible pieces of evidence. Then finally each group had to suggest the perpetrator.
