One of the Gardeners has been found dead in a greenhouse and the police need your help to unravel the mystery!
Spend a day solving a crime and discover some handy tips from nature. This day is perfect for young scientists who are looking for practical experience.
You will be asked to study the evidence given to you by the police using microscopes, chemical tests, powers of recognition, common sense and teamwork.
In the afternoon, once we have revealed the culprit, we will also be joined by Dr. Mark Spencer, a professional forensic botanist (regularly helping police forces to solve crimes) and former Curator at the Natural History Museum, who will explain how clues from nature can help to solve real crimes.
Suitable for ages 9-16
£13 Ticket price includes garden entry. Children must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult throughout the day.
