A visit from Newcastle University CSI
The CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) activity combines four areas (Science, Technology, English and Maths). The activity allowed the students to have the opportunity to experience a flavour of a varied range of different degrees available at University in a crime and investigation themed manner. The activity was split into three separate sessions relating to each of the subject areas and is run on a carousel basis. Using chemistry, biology and mathematical skills, the session explored various soil samples, DNA samples and cryptography related to the crime scene to help work out the perpetrator.
