Our Forensic Science Workshop ticks all of the above boxes and offers so much more!
Ideal opportunity to learn about Crime Scene techniques and Forensic Science processes, in a fun atmosphere supporting the new National Curriculum 2014 additionally, this workshop is a great introduction to the Criminal Justice System at Primary School age when it really matters!
The national curriculum (2013) calls for a ‘secure understanding’ of knowledge and concepts of science, stating that ‘insecure [and] superficial understanding’ will hinder progression, specifically identifying ‘key points of transition (between primary and secondary school)’ as a time of high risk. Pulse Education has identified this risk and has noticed a high demand for workshop services between the transitional period of key stage 2 to key stage 3. All schools who engage with the workshops report a significant increase in pupil attainment for scientific subjects. Pulse Education workshops actively provide an interactive baseline for students to progress into the levels of scientific inquiry expected in key stage 3 studies.
