The Science of Crime

Crime Scene Investigation workshops for adults and corporate events, schools and kid's parties.


Welcome to

The Detective Project

The Detective Project offers forensic science-based events that explore the way in which crime is investigated in the twenty-first century.
The Detective Project's award-winning events are based on real forensic investigation techniques and are great fun for children and adults alike.
The workshops are the perfect idea for kids parties, school activities, youth groups, grown-up parties, corporate or team-building events.
We currently operate in and around the West Country, London & South East, Leicester and Yorkshire. We enjoy going on road trips to other areas too.
