Forensic Scientist

A forensic scientist is a member of the team that investigates a crime scene. In a crime scene their job is to gather evidence such as fingerprints, footprints, blood , hair and bullets.

On Monday a lady named Emma  came to talk to the year 7 & 8 about her life and what she is doing now. She works for Forensic Scientist like how I was just talking about before. Her job is to gather evidence from crime scenes such as fingerprints, footprints,blood,hair and bullets and other evidence.

She is one of the  members of a forensic scientist team that investigates a crime scene. She told us that she really enjoys her job and her studies. “It is not a easy job and it is not a clean job either” she said. It isn’t like how it looks on crime scene programme, it is actually a messy job.

“Wow” I thought to myself that must be a hard working job. “ You'll probably have to have high marks in your school work and studies to do that” I was thinking to myself.

To be a forensic scientist you need to
- You need to know something about science - usually a science degree is required for most areas

-You need to be able to think "outside the box" to analyze evidence - it is not always straight forward

-You should not be disturbed by death or gross evidence items - you might be dealing with dead bodies.
- You need to be able to pass a background check and lie detector test about yourself
