Delivering Forensic Science Workshops in Schools nationwide
Raising Attainment & Aspirations in SciencePrimary, Secondary, Independent & Special Educational Needs Schools & PRU’s. Full Day Science Workshops delivered on a nationwide basis. Our CSI Workshops are tailored accordingly to each Key Stage including KS2, KS3, KS4. Additionally, we deliver a specific BTEC Forensic Science Workshop tailored to your specific BTEC modules. All our workshops can be tailored to your school’s specific requirements and timetable and students abilities.
Working Scientifically in the new curriculumScience stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct practical experience with ideas it can engage learners at many levels. The Scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling. This is a spur to critical and creative thought, all pupils learn to question and discuss science-based issues that may affect their own lives.
INSET Days for Teachers
A full day INSET designed to equip teachers to conduct Forensic Science activities within a classroom environment, used by many Schools as a Full Day INSET and Team Building Day. If appropriate this session is ideal for supporting teaching staff who are already delivering Forensic Science Modules particularly, BTEC First Diploma in Applied Sciences, in addition to practical “hands-on” Science lessons in both KS3 & KS4.
We would like to express our gratitude to Pulse CSI for the forensic science workshop delivered at Longfield Primary School on the 9th January 2017. It was a fantastic real world taste of the actual work done by CSI agents and scientists. Giving children the opportunity to immerse themselves in their learning, engaging with it at greater depth.
The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all students and staff. We were very impressed by the friendly and professional manner in which the session was conducted as well as the organisation and the quality of the resources provided. Whilst the workshop itself provided ample opportunity for children to acquire new skills and knowledge, it also had the additional benefit of being a great team-building exercise and we were all taken aback by the autonomy of the children when facing challenges, especially in the second half of the day.
We are especially grateful for your input on e-Safety, an area often considered laborious and dull, which was brought to life and made totally relatable.
This was a tailored CSI Workshop we delivered in conjunction with the school, what a fantastic day! I wonder what the theme will be next year! “Forensics Day with PulseCSI was an absolutely brilliant day. From start to finish, the pupils were totally engaged in the crime, the CSI training and the application of their newly acquired skills.
Basing the day around a ‘crime’ committed on school grounds, CSI Thompson led the pupils through the entire process of a forensic investigation carefully teaching them the skills they would need to solve the ‘crime.’ Fingerprint analysis, hair and fibre techniques and suspect profiles fascinated the pupils who were thrilled to be kitted out in full Forensic kit straight away. Suspect and witness interviews throughout the course of the day dovetailed with forensics analysis leading to the final line-up of suspects and concluding questions from the pupils. A last minute call from the Forensic lab revealed the true culprit in a dramatic denouement at the end of the day. We would all like to thank CSI Thompson for a fantastic day!The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
Many thanks again for the session you did on Tuesday at our school, the children all thoroughly enjoyed it and the staff did too!
From start to finish to the entire day was well organised and resourced, enabling all of the children to access the activities that were planned and develop brand new skills. The taking of finger prints, hand prints, shoe threads and looking at hair through a microscope, allowed the children to discover what CSIs actually do and to understand what would actually happen if they committed a crime in real life.
The 90 children that participated were engaged for the entire day and the fact that so many of them remained in their CSI outfits (despite the warm weather) just showed their commitment to the session and activities that they were given. This really is a credit to what you do. In the afternoon, we saw some of out quieter children really come out of their shells and fully participate in solving who had committed the murder, which was great to see too. St. Elphin’s thank you once again for such an amazing day!
