Anthropology and forensic casework
Number of participants: 15-30
Time: 10am-2pm, 26 May

A bone has been found by a dog walker, as a forensic anthropologist you are asked to determine whether or not the bone is human and if so give the police information about the sex, height and age of the individual.

This session is designed to interest students in the practical side of forensic science and how forensic science can be used to solve crimes by examining a potential crime scene.

Forensic specialists are often called upon to investigate missing persons cases, suspected burials and the discovery of bones. As a forensic archaeologist you will learn about techniques used to identify buried remains and exhume them.

Forensic laboratory analysis of evidence
Number of participants: 15-30

You have been provided with evidence which has been recovered from a crime scene. You will undertake a number of forensic laboratory techniques which will aid in the investigation.

This session is designed to interest students in the practical side of forensic science and how forensic science in the laboratory can be used to solve crimes. Many forensic scientists work in laboratories where investigations are carried out into evidence collected at crime scenes or from suspects in crimes. Laboratory work is an essential part of an investigation and in this session students get hands on experience of the techniques that laboratory-based forensic specialists use.

We will run the session which has the higher number of participants booked to attend.
