The sense of thrill and suspense associated with CSI excites young minds about forensic education. If your students desire to learn more about forensic science, not simply the TV type of science, but the actual science that is applied to real evidence collected from our local crime scenes, you have come to the right place. Your searching days are over; there is no more necessity to browse through the internet for crime cases, read forensic books or watch even more CSI videos to try to prepare and deliver a forensic lesson that is close to reality. Let us help you.
What Sets Us Apart
The Forensic Experts Group offers accomplished forensic scientists who are passionate about teaching students about the exciting field of forensic science. Our educational sessions get students excited about this career field while allowing them to gain insights into what happens behind the scenes. They are also given the opportunity to discuss real-life forensic cases with real forensic scientists. The experiential learning enables them to better appreciate science and its applications. They drive home the importance of ethics and responsible conduct in science and research.
Our experts enjoy sharing about forensic science and are able to bring it to life for students of all ages. From your inquisitive school pupils to your well-informed secondary school and college students, our lectures and practical sessions will present information in a stimulating and interesting manner. We are able to customise our Forensic Education Workshops to cater to the needs of your students, and have conducted workshops for Secondary School students (Express, Normal Academic & Normal Technical), Integrated Programme (IP) students and Junior College (JC) students.
Lectures Bring Forensic Science to Life
Lectures are the foundation of our educational programmes. This is the point where your students are introduced forensic science concepts and they start processing information. They will apply this knowledge and deepen their understanding of it through hands-on experience, group discussions and a variety of fun activities. It can all culminate in student presentations that allow your students to demonstrate their level of mastery over the material.
Hands-On Experience for Deeper Understanding
Forensics Education lectures are great, but you can’t really learn science without the practical sessions. Our experts love getting into real-world scenarios and providing thought-provoking challenges to students to stimulate their minds and explore forensic science. Your students will look forward to putting their new knowledge to work as they experiment and solve problems in a fun manner.
Group Activities and Lively Discussions for Dynamic Thinking
How do your students translate their new knowledge and apply it to the real world around them? Our experts will walk your students through group activities and engage them through brainstorming and dynamic discussions of real-life situations which are related to the lessons learned. This is where the science learned in the classroom and laboratory takes on real life and students learn not only from their own experiences, but also through the experiences of their friends.
Student Presentations Build Confidence
Our experts enjoy sharing and teaching students about forensic science, but they also enjoy listening to the ideas generated by the students. Individual or group presentations allow students to apply what they have learned and provide an opportunity for them to incorporate their own ideas to enliven topic. They can further research to explore the topic they find interesting or simply create a presentation about something they have learned from our experts. We can also organise friendly competitions to motivate them to make a short video clip of the topic learned.
Learning the Importance of Ethics
It is also necessary to educate students on the importance of ethics in the field of forensic science. Scientists must be objective, meticulous and reliable in handling the evidence and interpreting the findings in every step of the process. When any evidence is manipulated, mishandled, or misinterpreted, it can potentially destroy a case and/or the lives of people involved. It is therefore important for forensic scientists to not only have proper technical training and competency, but also good moral character.
Life-Changing Learning Forensics Education Experiences
The forensics education sessions presented by our experts have the potential to shape the life of at least one student in your charge. As they learn about forensic science and realise how the concepts they learned in school can be applied in real world to ensure justice for all, some of them may decide to opt for this career field. Others may gain an interest in science and move on to participate in break-through scientific research. You never know what the child will do when you take him/her into the world of an expert. The influence of an expert on a child is significant, especially when the expert is able to kindle a flame in the child.
At the very least, your students will learn something new and have a bit of fun. They will never again look at CSI and other crime-scene investigation TV shows in the same light!
