Forensic Science Educational Conferences

The American Academy of Forensic Sciences has announced the 2012 Forensic Science Education Conferences (FSECs) for Middle- and High-School Teachers

Teachers at the middle- and high-school levels are constantly seeking ways to improve on students' science and math skills. For many, a key way of achieving this goal is to take advantage of the fascination with the forensic sciences. To assist with teachers' efforts, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences co-sponsors a series of Forensic Science Educational Conferences across the United States.

Currently, four FSEC conferences have been scheduled for 2012:

- University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK - June 25-27, 2012
- University of Alabama at Birmingham in Birmingham, AL - July 11-13, 2012
- San Jose State University in San Jose, CA - July 11 - 13, 2012
- Waynesburg University in Waynesburg, PA - August 7-9, 2012
