Discover Forensics™ programmes are specially curated by practising Forensic Scientists to engage and inspire young and curious minds. Our exciting programmes bring young budding scientists on a journey to explore and learn about the intriguing world of forensic science where are exposed to evidence such as fibres, soil, fingerprints, knots and suspicious materials. They will not only acquire practical laboratory skills such as microscopy, but also hone important attributes such as presentation skills and critical thinking.
Through sharing our first-hand experiences, we aim to expose our young scientists to a world of forensic science beyond what is often depicted on TV and let them have a glimpse of how Science taught in class can be applied in the real world.
Participants take on the role of a Forensic Scientist and explore different forensic disciplines such as fingerprints, fibres, soil, inks, bloodstain patterns and more through fun filled with interactive and exciting hands-on activities. They also get to speak to our scientists, authors of the Discover Forensics book series, and hear about cases handled by them and learn what it takes to be a forensic scientist. At the of each session, participants will be presented with a certificate. Sign up Now!
Perfect for children aged 7 to 12, “Fun with Forensics” introduces our Junior Forensic Scientists to the intriguing world of forensic science where they they get to learn about fingerprints, fibres, soil, inks and more! Packed with hands on activities, they will have fun learning and acquiring new skills at the same time!
Ideal for children aged 10 to 14, this programme takes them on an adventure to delve deeper into the different disciplines of forensic science such as shoe prints, bloodstain patterns and handwriting. They will explore more about how science, mathematics and engineering can be useful in solving cases.
Specially designed for Budding Forensic Scientists aged 13 to 16, this is an advanced programme where they have to apply knowledge of different forensic disciplines to investigate and solve cases using laboratory skills, critical thinking and logical reasoning.
Psst…hit refresh to discover another fun forensic fact!
- Trivia #6: DNA EvidenceDNA is commonly thought to be the most important evidence in solving a crime. However, while DNA tells us “Who” was involved, there are several other types of evidence such as trace evidence, and damage and marks evidence, which can tell us the “What”, “When”, “Where” & “How” of a crime.
Our programmes are specially designed to broaden students’ knowledge of forensic science, hone both their soft and hard skills, and can be used as a precursor to or reinforce what they learn in class. They get hands-on experience in solving a case, interact with and hear about cases handled by practising forensic scientists, and find out what it takes to be in the field of forensics. Our scientists have conducted programmes for local and international schools, students of different levels (Primary to Tertiary), streams (NA/NT/Express/Special/IP) and even CCAs such as Scouts and NPCC.
