Celebrating Science Week with an interactive murder mystery certainly encouraged a love of science for our ever-curious Middle School students.


A team from Education interactive brought real-to-life crime science investigations to life with their workshop, A Case of Conspiracy. With four identified suspects, students were required to work through a series of forensic evidence experiments to solve the murder mystery. These experiments includied DNA, tracing blood marks, fingerprints, digital evidence, handwriting, textiles examination and more. Along the way students learnt about how chemistry, physics and biology can help to solve crimes.


Mr Grahame Binns, SGCS Science Coordinator, explained:


This workshop was organized as part of Science Week. We are passionate about science, and hope that by presenting science in this way, our students will be enthused to consider science as a career.


Year 9 and Year 10 students will have the opportunity to test their sleuthing skills, when Education Interactive return in Term 4 with a Case of Identity.


Cue: Theme Song, Who Are You.
