Our L3 Applied Science students got the chance to experience what it is like to be ‘Scene of the Crime’ Officers, when they took part in an activity last week at our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Centre.

As part of their Forensic Science module, our students learnt more about how the professionals investigate real crime scenes.

They wore protective clothing before investigating the ‘suspicious death’.

Students had to take samples, find concealed murder weapons and write up a full report detailing what they had found.

The activity was co-ordinated by our Barking & Dagenham College’s STEM Development Curriculum Manager, Errol Seaman and assessed by Michelle Benjamin, their science lecturer at the College.

Michelle said: “All the students thoroughly enjoyed the assessment. They played the part of crime scene officers very well. They acted professionally and were determined to do well and find out as much as they could from processing the scene. I was very proud of them all.”
