A Case Of Conspiracy

Workshop Storyline

A new drug dealer on the scene is found dead and foul play is suspected.

An 18-year-old boy is arrested for the murder which he claims to know nothing about. However, drugs, a gun and a stash of money were found at the home of the accused which all point to his guilt! This case highlights how the lure of drugs and easy money can lead to a web of deceit and betrayal. Your students will examine and interpret the evidence which includes arson, DNA, and ballistic evidences.

Interactive Evidence Stations

Supplement your lesson plan with this hands-on science incursion your students will be raving about. Your students work collaboratively to analyse evidence,  determine timelines, and uncover motives of the suspects.

Exploration of Social Issues

Our science incursions also cover serious social and community issues as an undertone to the storyline. This case discusses drug awareness and the impacts of hanging out with the wrong crowd. It is presented subtly to allow an open dialogue with your students.
