Fairfield School do CSI

A SCRAP of paper with a telephone number and a jelly baby provided the vital clues to a major crime scene investigation at the school.

Children were fingerprinted and evidence was pieced together during the CSI workshop, which involved the whole school.

Bringing science to life, each class had to work together with investigators armed with forensic equipment in the form of magnifying glasses and dusters, to read the crime scene.

An area of the classroom was taped off and the children found clues and evidence to be identified, collected, interpreted and analysed.
