Forensic Science Murder Mystery

A film documenting a cross-curricular drama project with secondary school students inspired by a TV crime series.

A partnership project between Fulham Cross Secondary School and Labyrinth Theatre. Film by Labyrinth Theatre, 2008.

This 14 minute film documents the process of a cross curricular drama project with Year 8 students at Fulham Cross Secondary School for Girls in West London, inspired by popular TV police investigation series.

The students worked with Labyrinth Theatre to devise their own murder mysteries and solve each others' crimes through incorporating science, maths, ICT, literacy, and arts skills to analyse the evidence.

Through the performance of their investigations they also developed communication skills, public speaking and team building. The film includes feedback from teachers, students and Creative Partnerships project staff on the success of the project.
