Unleash Your Inner Detective: Forensic Based CSI Workshop
All-ages |Kids |Tweens |Teens |Adults

The Science of Crime offers immersive forensic science-based events that explore real-life crime scene investigation techniques.


We offer multiple age-appropriate themed events that provide both children and adults an authentic and original Crime Scene Investigation experience. Working in small teams, your job is to find the evidence, solve the clues and catch the criminal!

Our unique themed workshops are written and hosted by an experienced forensic expert. Wearing your special CSI suits and using real forensic tools you will complete practical activities to help solve the crime.

Kids, Tweens, and Family events involve learning about Crime Scene Investigation techniques in a fun, hands-on way through activities such as fingerprinting, evidence collection, DNA, and interviews.

For older Teens and Adults, the event contains more mature themes, as we offer you an opportunity to examine a murder mystery crime scene and uncover the clues to help solve the crime. Workshops last between 60 and 150 minutes. So grab your kids, whānau, friends, or colleagues and book today!
