Forensic Science Educational Conferences

In December 2000, the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) was released comparing U.S. students with those of 41 other nations. At the end of 12th grade, our students ranked among the very lowest in math and science of the 42 countries. Keenly aware of the deficiencies, middle- and high school science teachers are seeking appropriate methods to improve science competence in students.

With today’s explosion of television programs and media coverage of the latest advancements in the forensic sciences, students have become fascinated with anything relating to the work of the forensic scientist. Wishing to foster a stronger interest in science learning among our nation’s young people, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences now co-sponsors Forensic Science Educational Conferences (FSEC). The goal of the Conferences is to increase science teachers’ knowledge of the forensic sciences and to assist them as they enrich and/or develop challenging, innovative curricula.
