Forensic fun at Jr STEM

This week at jr STEM students got the opportunity to be forensic scientists. Someone has been forging cheques! Working in small teams, students had to analyse evidence gathered at the crime scene to identify the forger from a pool of suspects. This included examining fingerprints, using microscopes to look at fibres and using chromatography to figure out which of the suspects pens matches the ink used on the forged cheques.

The students were brilliant, worked well as teams and got the correct decision after thorough forensic analysis of the evidence. This club is growing and it was great to see some new faces.

Well done to all involved.
