Take part in a 30 minute forensic science workshop to help the Inspector to catch the criminals.

In the quiet English village of Upper Slugpitt (near Brighton!), someone is trying to get money by blackmailing members of the village. There are six suspects but which one is guilty?

After a quick introduction to the case you will be able to look at the clues and carry out some tests on the evidence. We will look at fingerprints and inks to help solve the case and bring the guilty party to justice. You will also be able to take away a set of your own fingerprints.
