STEM club pupils enjoyed investigating a murder mystery in the Sir Sydney Camm science and technology building on Thursday 13 January. Following a terrible murder of Carl Monte, the host of a lavish New Year’s Eve party, CSI Claremont sprang into action to solve this mysterious crime! Year 8 crime scene officers in full costume collected evidence left behind at the scene including a shoe print, fingerprints, and possible murder weapons.  These were all recorded as evidence for further analysis.

Over the coming weeks pupils will explore the evidence using chemical, soil, footprint and fibre analysis. They will also investigate fingerprint techniques, to bring the perpetrator to justice. It was wonderful to see the activity so well attended and there was much excitement amongst pupils as they began to investigate the crime scene.
