B&FC forensic science event sees visitors investigate career opportunities

Blackpool and The Fylde College has given the next generation of investigators the chance to try their hand at solving crimes using cutting-edge forensic science techniques.

The event was aimed at showing potential students the advanced evidence-gathering techniques they will learn on the College’s Level 3 Science course, which could lead to a successful career in forensic science.

They were given access to a mock crime scene within the College’s Advanced Technology Centre where they were told to gather evidence to try to discover what had happened at the scene of a car crash.

Sam Bentley, Science Curriculum Manager at B&FC, said: “Forensics is an area where people can really see science being put to work to solve crimes.

“Obviously these kinds of investigation techniques have been made famous by programmes such as the CSI shows, so people are really interested to see how clues are analysed in this way.

“Almost 70 per cent of B&FC students at levels 3, 4 and 5 undertake STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths)-related study so we were really pleased with the amount of people who attended and to hear how interested they were in careers in science.

“At Blackpool and The Fylde College we invest in the latest equipment to give our students the practical skills they will need when entering a range of industries so it was fantastic to be able to showcase these facilities to the visitors.”

B&FC delivers science programmes from GCSE-level to degrees accredited by Lancaster University, a top 10 UK institution recently named The Times and Sunday Times University of the Year.
