Some may have deemed it inevitable, given our school’s connection to Arthur Conan Doyle, that at some point a crime would be committed, and blood would be spilt! Not for real though I hasten to add, purely in the pursuit of Science. Amanda, along with a number of our budding criminologists, have been investigating the physics of blood spatter, and understanding what forensic science can reveal about a crime scene. A gory mixture of syrup, cornflower, and red and blue food colouring substituted for the real thing, and an energetic application of said mixture, reminiscent of Jackson Pollock at his finest, gave plenty of evidence to work with. Fortunately no clothes were harmed in the making of this lesson and the evidence has a been handed over to our Art department for further examination.
