Serious Study with Amateur Sleuthing
By the British Science Association, the CREST awards help students to tackle science with an investigative approach. This case study describes how Year Seven students at Downlands Community College undertook a 'crime scene investigation' simulation.
The activity allowed students to gain a bronze CREST Award during the day-long activity. Students demonstrated the project process by being involved in planning, gathering and analysing data and then presenting results.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
