CSI Manchester

This event is part of the Manchester Science Festival 2017.

From Sherlock Holmes to CSI, forensics fascinate us. Head over to Minshull Street Crown Court, a stunning Victorian-era court to explore where science meets criminal justice. You’ll learn the history of forensics, study state-of-the-art techniques and see how far we’ve come. Professor Ian Burney will discuss how forensics transformed the processing of murder scenes, and you’ll take part in a mock trial as a member of the jury. Will you interpret the evidence correctly, or convict an innocent man? The game’s afoot.
