Junior Gazette reporters
As part of Kirkham Grammar Junior School J3’s Science topic Super Scientists, Caroline, a forensic scientist, came in to speak to us about her role within the police.
The morning was very interesting for both the children (and staff!) and everyone was amazed by how the material evidence gathered from the crime scene, victim and/or suspect is used by the forensic scientists. Their role is to examine these materials to provide scientific evidence to assist in the investigation and court proceedings.
We all lifted fingerprints, swabbed for DNA, collected fibres and took an impression of our own footprint.
Miss Evans even had a clay shoeprint made from her shoe which can be used as evidence!
Thank you Caroline for coming into KGJS, the morning was not only educational, but fascinating and great fun. too!
