Kilgraston Juniors turn forensic scientists


Kilgraston Juniors CSI day

Kilgraston Juniors Upper Second class have been exploring the topic of Crime this term.

This week the class were lucky enough to have Jon Bates from Sci-High visit the pupils in school to staged a crime for the class to solve.

In a busy day of crime-solving the class had to turn forensic scientist ,detective and finally jury to solve the case using their knowledge and understanding and our scientific skills.

There was finger print analysis, swabbing of blood from the crime scene and  footprint examination. The class also examined handwriting, used chromatography, examined clothes from the suspects and compared DNA samples.

The Upper Second class had so much fun and even – after a court case in Scotties –  managed to successfully solve the crime, presenting the forensic evidence and learning about the judicial system in Scotland.

What a fantastic day.
