A Case Of Emergency

Workshop Storyline

A young student is missing! Did they run away from home to join the circus, were they kidnapped, or has something else happened to them!?

The circus is in town but after the show, one child does not return home and the Forensics team is called in to track him down. Your students will examine the crime scene, learn about animal tracks, scatology, take their own fingerprints, use a digital microscope, uncover hidden clues and much more during this investigation.

Hands-on Activities

At Education Interactive we encourage curiosity and creativity in science by engaging your students in a fascinating investigation. Your students will explore real-world applications of science as forensic scientists. Through this investigation, they will develop their critical and creative thinking skills as they work to solve the case and find the missing boy.

Exploration of Social Issues

Not only will your students explore the Science curriculum, but they will also be exposed to important social and community issues. This story highlights the importance of cyber safety and reiterates the need to have a trusted safety network.
