This highly interactive day is delivered by experienced detectives and really brings science to life in the classroom, using forensics as a vehicle. The children get to take DNA samples and fingerprints from each other, and to practice search techniques, with the day culminating in the examination of a mock crime scene.

Children will be introduced to the work of the police and recognise how their own skills can already relate to careers. They are guided through a set of practically based scenarios demonstrating how science aids an investigation and how their classroom based learning facilitates this. Tey also explore searching, depr=ivation of liberty (arrest) and the rule of law. The day concludes with the investigation of a mock crime scene where all their skills are brought together.

The trainers used are chosen by Zakon Training for their policing experience, trainer skills and ability to relate to children.

Amongst the many benefits of the day are the promotion of respect and tolerance, the teaching of the rule of law and British values and the linking of skills to careers.

The day is designed for children from ages 6-11, although it can be adapted for older or younger children if required.
