“WELLCOME” TO FORENSICS – is a six week programme with one three hour session per week, from 24th May 2019 for six weeks. It is free for adult members of the public and is funded through the Wellcome Trust and WEA. We have already run two of these programmes, the first one in Huddersfield and the other in Leicester, the feedback from people who attended is excellent. Both events were full within a very short time so if you would like to attend please register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. This is a one off chance to have fun and do something really interesting.
The venue for the programme will be Central Community Centre, 26 Lindum Street, Scunthorpe, DN15 6QU, the final session will include a visit to Think Forensic’s unique crime centre in Huddersfield (transport provided). Each session will run from 10am to 1pm however the final session will be slightly longer. If you do want to enrol you must be prepared to make your own way to Central Community Centre each week and must sign up to all six sessions.
The sessions will be run by Think Forensic’s staff so you will meet and talk to Forensic scientists, CSI’s, senior investigating officers and crime investigation officers all of whom have worked in the field.
Each week we will look at a different topic and we have put a basic outline of the programme below, however we may change this depending on our staff availability.
