Solve a murder at the University of Sydney. We’ll teach you about forensic science and you’ll use your wits to decipher a mysterious crime. There’ll be hands-on sessions in the laboratory and interactive lectures from scientific experts. You’ll work with a team of fellow detectives to analyse evidence and convict a suspect.


Are you fascinated by Sci Show, Veritasium and Vsauce on YouTube? Did you listen to the whole of Serial twice? Do you secretly have a deerstalker hat and magnifying glass hidden under your bed? If you're a natural problem solver and enjoy exploring a case from every angle, the Sydney Science Experience is the place you need to be in January. Come and give us your best Sherlock impression as you help solve a murder mystery on campus. You will employ real science in hands-on laboratory sessions and interactive lectures to solve this crime. You will work with your fellow detectives to collect evidence against our suspects, and finish the week by putting one of them on (mock) trial.
