Forensic Medicine Project

On Wednesday 14th June, Mr Loggie was found dead! Of course he wasn’t really, but the Forensic Medicine class had set up a ‘crime scene’ with one dead Headteacher and four suspects. This was the culmination of a forensics project in which the students learnt about some different techniques used by biologists, chemists and physicists who support police crime units. With their in-depth knowledge of blood typing, soil analysis, powder analysis and chromatography, the students organised a fictional crime for others to investigate. It was brilliant to see STEM in action with our students teaching other students different forensic techniques. They certainly learnt a lot, while at the same time discovering that it was in fact Mr Windle who stabbed Mr Jobling on the 4th floor of Island School on that fateful day.
