Dead on Time

Booking onto this event is restricted by postcode

Open to Year 9 and 10 pupils

Want to be a CSI detective?

This three day challenge sees pupils use criminology and forensic science skills to solve a mysterious death. Using techniques such as DNA and fingerprint analysis, crime scene investigation, and gathering and processing of evidence, teams will work together to reach a conclusion to ensure justice is done.
