S1 pupils enjoyed an afternoon learning about forensic science in the chemistry lab by solving a murder mystery.
During the challenge, the group learned about how forensic scientists catch a culprit by reading witness statements, taking soil samples and studying clothing found at the fictional crime scene.
The group enjoyed learning about tests that can place a suspect at the scene of a crime.
To conclude the day, they learned how to work effectively and safely as a team and presented their results convincingly to chemistry teacher, Dr Smith.
Very well done to Delphine, Elli, Samyu, Jamie, Abbas and Esther who managed to solve the mystery.
