As part of Year 4 and 5’s STEM/Science Week, children had the opportunity to become ‘Forensic Scientists’. They had to solve a ‘dognapping’ mystery. Children were given a variety of clues ranging from fingerprints, chromatography samples and footprints. In teams of 6, children examined the evidence and tried to ascertain who had dognapped the prize pooch, which dog had been dognapped and who the owner of the dog was. In the process, children were able to learn about fingerprinting, chromatography and DNA samples.
