Pulse CSI came into Winifred Holtby Academy to deliver a session on forensic science to our Y9/Y10 Excellence Academy pupils. Pupils were engaged with hands on practical’s activities on how forensic investigators use the technology of science to narrow suspects lists and eventually how they convict criminals in homicide cases.

Pupils donned their white Hazmat crime scene suits and learnt skills in fibre analysis, carbon finger printing and footprint analysis and then after Lunch used their skills to resolve a murder case. 12/14 participating groups managed to successfully solve the case; a record number from all schools who have participated in this activity by Pulse CSI.

A fun, inquisitive day of learning had by all!
