The youngsters became forensic crime scene investigators for the day as a part of a module on their applied science course at the college last Friday.
The students wore protective clothing and masks to carry help carry out their inquiries which involved them having to find clues like the hidden murder weapon, planted as a part of the exercise.
Barking and Dagenham College science lecturer, Michelle Benjamin, said: "They played the part of crime scene officers very well.
