Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to attend a four-day conference on forensic science at Sam Houston State University. Registrants will receive lab and lecture based instruction and a variety of electronic and physical resources to help incorporate forensic science into the middle and high school curriculum.

The conference is designed to provide instruction to middle- and high school science educators on the use of forensic science in lectures and laboratory exercises to underscore basic scientific principles. The participants will learn how the scientific method is applied to both the recovery of evidence from the scene of the crime and subsequent laboratory testing of physical evidence. The conference will consist of workshops and laboratory-based instruction by forensic science faculty and scientists with real-world experience in a variety of forensic disciplines, including:

  • Forensic biology and DNA
  • Forensic toxicology
  • Forensic pathology and death investigation
  • Trace evidence
  • Controlled substances
  • Fingerprints
  • Pattern evidence
  • Crime scene investigation
  • Entomology
  • Digital Forensics

Training will be provided in a state of the art facility with access to scientific equipment and resources available in crime laboratories. Conference faculty are forensic scientists with experience working within their respective disciplines.
