Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them and at no time has it been more relevant than in today's world. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct practical experience with ideas it can engage learners at many levels. The Scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modeling. This is a spur to critical and creative thought, all students learn to question and discuss science-based issues that may affect their own lives.
With the introduction of the National Primary Curriculum in September 2014, our Science Workshop continues to support the “Working Scientifically” agenda and is a great introduction or conclusion to any Crime & Punishment, DNA, Detective, ID and Science-based topic in your Primary Schools.
Our objective is and always has been, to raise attainment & aspirations in Science and in STEAM both in Primary, Secondary, Independent & Special Educational Needs Schools & PRU’s. Our full-day Science workshops are delivered on a nationwide basis. Our CSI Workshops are tailored accordingly to Primary Science and KS2 (Keystage 2).
Delivered through a 'Full Day' Forensic Science Workshop at your school premises, in the School or Sports Hall, a series of educational, ‘hands-on' & practical activities, which additionally, promote early intervention and introduce pupils to the Criminal Justice System at an early age, when it really matters.
Our workshops were originally an “Enterprise Agenda Initiative” which supported the national curriculum and in particular, were relevant to 21st Century Science curriculum, however, in addition to the core Science subjects, our workshops are also cross-curricular supporting; Citizenship, PSHE, History, Media, Mathematics, English, Geography, Drama, Science, ICT, and RE. In the 15 years of teaching this subject, Forensic In particular, how Forensic Applications are used in establishing a person's ethnicity, which can be extremely useful during a Crime Scene Investigation process.
The modern world needs young people who are sufficiently confident in their own beliefs and values that they can respect the religious and cultural differences of others, and contribute to a cohesive and compassionate society.
Our Forensic Science Workshops are designed to engage the students in “hands-on” interactive activities ensuring the student’s full participation both individually and within teams using problem-solving techniques.
Further Education: Additionally, students can learn about occupations related to Forensic Science and Crime Scene Investigation and how these techniques relate and integrate into everyday life and the importance that this specialist skillset plays within today’s criminal justice system.
We can deliver our workshop in the classroom to 30 pupils and up to 120 Pupils where the delivery would be in the school hall, larger groups can also be catered for, as long as the school has the necessary tables and chairs. Based on 120 pupils we would
work on the basis of 20 Groups x 6 Pupils (mixed - non-friendship groups) which in our opinion and experience works really well.
CEOP ONLINE SESSION: As a CEOP Ambassador our workshops have continued to be developed and this e-Safety session is very popular with Primary Teachers and supports their online e-safety sessions within primary schools, we discuss the most popular social media platforms, age restrictions and appropriate age-related content. Additionally, we are STEAM Ambassadors and work closely with schools to promote STEAM opportunities where possible.
Our program is delivered using resources from Think U Know provided by CEOP [Child Exploitation Online Protection Agency] and NCA [National Crime Agency] and this is a great introduction to the Criminal Justice System.
Pulse CSI was formed in 2007 with a vision to engage and enthuse primary school children about bite-size SCIENCE and STEM. Having a background in Technical Engineering Recruitment in various industries and sectors and following on from personal study at the University of Lincoln, Jacqui's passion for Science and in particular Forensic Science grew, regularly visiting schools throughout the UK promoting STEM. Jacqui soon realised the 'hook' of 'CSI' Crime Scene Investigation and the application of Forensic Science and its impact on society would be a great way to enthuse students about Science and STEM. Our CSI Forensic Science Workshops have proven to excite pupils' curiosity in Science + STEM throughout Primary, Secondary, and SEND Schools nationwide and continue to do so year on year. We have been operating for 15 years and have seen and embraced many changes in Forensic Science technology and continue to develop our CSI Workshop experience.
