School children learn forensics

Year 6 children from nine schools learned forensic techniques to help them solve a fictional murder case

The event was run by Burgess Hill School for Girls on Friday 17th January and children from nine schools attended to carry out experiments in the Senior School Science labs.

The experiments included identifying hair and pollen samples under a microscope, identifying finger prints with a magnifying glass and using Bunsen burners to test chemicals from the ‘crime scene’.
