Becky Flanagan, Forensic Science Lecturer, University of Wolverhampton

“Developing an online forensic science and CSI activity with LearnSci was such an exciting and important opportunity. As an ex-CSI and forensic manager with 20 years experience and now a Lecturer in Forensic Science at the University of Wolverhampton, I knew how important it was to get the key principles of crime scene management, examination and forensic evidence right and embedded with students, whilst ensuring they were engaged and excited about the activity.”
