Can you be a forensic scientist?
September 5, 2023 6:00pm The Royal Society Of Edinburgh, 22-26 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2PQ
Dive into the inner workings of forensics as you analyse evidence and present it to court in this exciting, hands-on workshop.
Take on the role of a forensic scientist and work together with others to solve a crime. What will be the outcome for the accused? How will everything fit together? The outcome is up to you.
Find and analyse evidence to unravel the mystery of a criminal case and present your evidence to the court. Consider not just what the evidence reveals, but what limitations are also present. Discover more about how forensic scientists work and the challenge of communicating complex information.
Join this interactive workshop where you will be working in groups to analyse evidence and present it to your ‘jury’. You will become the forensic scientists investigating the evidence related to a murder, guided by forensics scientists from The Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science (LRCFS)
The fictional case at the centre of this workshop will be based on a retelling of the real trial of Madeleine Smith from Glasgow in 1857, which is the focus of the podcast ‘Inside Forensic Science‘ produced by The Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science (LRCFS).Book Now
