Encouraging a Curiosity in Science

Our Year 8 students had their investigative hats on this week, combing through forensic evidence in an attempt to solve a lifelike crime scene investigation.

The boys were treated to a special incursion by Education Interactive, who gave an insight into the benefits of forensic science, learning how chemistry, physics and biology can help solve crimes.

Education Interactive presenter Penny Creagh said she was pleased with the level of interest from the students and fielded many inquisitive questions, which helped make her job of teaching them the importance surrounding forensic science, a lot easier.

“What I love about this program is that the kids forget they are actually doing work.”

Ms Creagh said the program was fun, interesting and interactive, and provided a great learning environment where the students get to experience how science works outside of the classroom.

After the boys buddied up, each pair had to undertake a series of forensic evidence experiments which helped them piece together exactly what happened by following the evidence trail.
