You have reached the main content region of the page.

An ancient, Egyptian urn has been stolen from the museum! There are several suspects, all of whom that had access to the urn, but do they have a motive to steal it?

Your students will take on the role of forensic scientists. Using science inquiry skills, they will investigate the evidence collected from the crime scene, make observations, record and analyse data and develop explanations based on the evidence.

Can they use their evidence to prove who the criminal mastermind is?
