Solving Crime With Science Workshop

Every year Christ's Hospital hosts a 'Solving Crime with Science' workshop for upto 60 pupils from local primary schools. Last year 15 schools took part. Pupils spend the day in our Science department taking part in various experiments and hand-on activites. They complete a workbook throughout the day which leads them to solve the 'crime'. Pupils and visiting parents are all invited to join us for refreshments at the end of the workshop and each pupil receives a certificate of participation.
