Euro4Science is an EU funded project involving partners in 4 European countries, looking at the use of ideas from forensic sciences to boost the appeal of science to young people and reinforce interdisciplinarity in European high schools.

Skipton Girls' High School is a partner school of the Euro4Science project and during its first phase there were successful SGHS student exchanges to Portugal with Skipton Academy and to Bulgaria with Ermysted’s. It all culminated with an exciting Science Festival with a week of activities and a CSI style murder to solve.

Euro4Science 2.0 is a spin-off of the Euro4Science project. We use the CSI motto through crime cases to create challenges that students can solve using techniques such as blood type analysis while learning mathematics, chemistry and other subjects in active and exciting ways. In Euro4Science 2.0 we will expand and improve the Forensic Science Education Toolbox with materials and activities for teachers and students including activities related to environment, health and citizenship. There will again be the opportunity for our students to take part in overseas exchanges and get involved with different aspects of this exciting project!

Euro4Science Competition

Students from all European partner countries  were invited to submit designs to go on to the top of the CSI toolkit.

SGHS submitted five designs, chosen from numerous entries by a panel of Year 12 Art students.  We are now eagerly awaiting the result of the European judges as to which has been chosen as the winning design.
