Event description

Description

In this workshop, students get to experience what it would be like to work in a forensics lab by investigating a fictional crime scene scenario. They will evaluate the crime scene and suspect DNA samples using modern molecular biological techniques including restriction digests and gel electrophoresis. They will compare the bands formed on the gels to identify the criminal.

This workshop is a great introduction to genetics and forensic analysis. Students will learn how scientists would approach a crime scene situation and how to pour and load gels, a process that many students do not have practical exposure to before attending university.

Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds only. This workshop will include a 30 minute unsupervised lunch break. Discounted tickets are available to Ri Members. Find out more about how to join.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
