A3 Scientific detection: module summary
The Scientific detection module provides an insight into three vocational areas:
- law enforcement (forensics)
- environmental protection
- consumer protection
The drama of forensic investigation can make this module very attractive to students. However there are more opportunities for employment in environmental monitoring, consumer protection, and health care.
The module will come across to students as more authentic if you are able either to organise trips out to organisations involved in scientific detection, or to set up visits to the class by practitioners.
