Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Forensic Science: An Introduction to the Analysis of Evidence

Workshop Title: Forensic Science: An Introduction to the Analysis of Evidence
Descrption: The Center for Workshops in the Chemical Sciences (CWCS) conducts workshops for college and university faculty. The Forensic Science workshop is a 5 day intensive program that provides a background in the analysis of various kinds of evidence ranging from fingerprints and trace to drugs and DNA. This workshop will provide the participants with an opportunity to have hands on experience with some specific techniques and instruments used in the analysis of evidence frequently associated with modern criminal activities. The half-day workshop will consist of 4 or 5 activities coordinated by alumni of the CWCS Forensic Science workshop. Activities may include: determination of breath and saliva alcohol concentration; presumptive drug analysis; lifting fingerprints; and trace evidence analysis. The activities are appropriate for use in general education lab science courses for non-science majors as well as in general, organic and analytical chemistry courses for science majors. The workshop will be held twice during one day of the BCCE; once in the morning and repeated for another group of participants in the afternoon. The CWCS is supported by the NSF, DUE, CCLI Program (DUE-0618678)

Since the CWCS is also offering a symposium and a Chemistry of Art in the Laboratory workshop, we would like the following schedule: Monday-Forensic Science: An Introduction to the Analysis of Evidence workshop; Tuesday-CWCS Symposium; Wednesday-Chemistry of Art in the Laboratory workshop.
Itemized Expenses: Cost of equipment and supplies including drug detecting kits, fingerprint supplies, stains for fabric, etc.
