Twenty pupils from Dungannon Primary School have completed a 6 week CSI programme at the College, under the guidance of ICD teacher, Mrs Deirdre McCann, as part of our extended schools programme.
Week 1 – analysis of stomach content (food tests)
Week 2 – flame tests using the Bunsen burner to determine what powder was left at the crime scene
Week 3 – acid and alkali testing of various chemicals to see what the unknown liquid was at the crime scene
Week 4 – chromatography of different inks to find out who left the note
Week 5 – using microscopes to look at blood samples and fibre samples collected from crime scene
Week 6 – dusting for fingerprints and final analysis of all the evidence gathered over the 6 weeks to identify the killer
Well done to a very enthusiastic group of investigators and we hope to see you all again soon!
