The Monash Murder Mystery provides an opportunity for students who enjoy science to get involved in a fun, educational day at Monash University. Students will be given an introduction to science at a university level and will be given a broader understanding of career paths in chemistry, forensic science, and other science streams. Students will then be split into teams and complete six separate activities to analyse clues and solve the murder mystery.
The session starts at 10.00am sharp, and finishes at 2.30pm. Please come to the First Year Chemistry Labs – Ground Floor, 13Rainforest Walk (labeled as Green Chemical Futures on the map).During the day the students will be chaperoned to the different activity areas by our volunteers; however, we encourage teachers to join their students and observe the range of activities.
A $10 lunch voucher for the campus centre cafe will be provided to all staff and students who attend on the day.
Student should make their own way to Monash University, Clayton Campus. Students are required to wear fully enclosed shoes on the day.
