Toes For Turf! Examine the link between Fingerprints and Feet Prints
Thursday, 13 December, 2012 - 09:00 to Friday, 13 December, 2013 - 09:00
Your Establishment

This is a "self delivery" pack which has been designed specifically for National Science and Engineering Week 2013. The science behind fingeprints is well known! What is not so well known is the link between fingerprints and footprints. Right Angle Events have launched a new education pack called ‘Toes for Turf’ comprising at least 4 hours of fun teaching material linked to Key Stage 1-4 Mathematics.

Crime scene investigation/forensic science
Thursday, 13 December, 2012 - 16:30 to Friday, 13 December, 2013 - 16:30
Self Delivery

We have designed a fantastic scheme especially for National Science & Engineering Week called "Toes For Turf". The science behind fingerprints is well known. What is not so well known is the science behind footprints or "feet prints". This activity enables students to take, classify and "lift" both fingerprints and foot prints. As the research on footprints is meagre, this scheme will allow students to make some discoveries about the correlation or otherwise between fingerprints and feet prints.

“I wasn’t expecting that, it was amazing! It took theatre to another level” Teacher, Swindon Primary School. The world is struggling to come up with new ideas, even the greatest brains are incapable of thought. Something has gone terribly wrong and only a team of intrepid explorers can find out what is really happening. But first… we need to shrink them down in size, so they can begin their Journey to the Centre of the Brain! On our larger-than-life-sized quest through the brain we explore what is happening inside our skull.
