Student wants to be a forensic scientist

A Year 7 student wants to become a forensic scientist thanks to a love of Science and computing.


Shaun also enjoys riding his bike and taking part in his Scouts group in Redruth. He is looking forward to their upcoming expedition which will see them walking from Hayle to Tehidy.

He said: “I like Science and DT at school and find it interesting. I want to be a forensic Scientist when I am older.  You have to look at crime scenes and run it over a system, I am good at computers so that will help.

“Outside of school I go to Scouts. We are going on an expedition of 15km. We will have to cook on a Trangia which is a camping stove. We will make simple sausages and beans and I will bring some pancake mix for the morning so we can have pancakes.

“I am looking forward to it.”

Shaun goes to Scouts once a week and enjoys being with the other members. He plans to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award with them.

His dad is a Scout Leader and he would like to become young leader.

Shaun used to attend Trewirgie Infants School and Treloweth Primary School
