Forensic science features in a number of popular television series. This has led to a widespread interest in the application of scientific principles and practice to the world of crime detection and has resulted in a tremendous increase in forensic studies in higher education. In 1999 there were 12 courses listed in the UK’s Universities and Colleges Admission System (UCAS); in 2003 this had increased to over 200, and in 2007, 449 degree courses which include the word forensic in their title are listed. This popular interest in one branch of applied science can be harnessed to illustrate many principles of earth and environmental sciences at secondary school level.
