On the Front Line:

New Frontiers in Forensics, Crime and Security

April 4, 2017 ・ 10 am to 4 pm ・ Miller Theatre

Following a successful inaugural conference at the Royal Institution in London (2016) and a second programme at the Miller Theatre in New York City (April 2017), we invite your class to attend this remarkable event – designed for science and psychology students – this year. Immerse your students in lectures and demonstrations led by the world’s most prominent experts in forensic, crime and security science.


FrontLineCon – in addition to being a riveting and unforgettable day out for your students – has been carefully designed to connect to fundamental objectives or key themes in your science and psychology curriculum.

Educators will be provided with a comprehensive curriculum guide outlining the national curriculum objectives that each presentation meets. This will allow you to bring this experience back to your classroom for further discussion or exploration.

Be riveted by live demonstrations and talks by leading scientists and technologists. This event is proudly hosted by Forensic Outreach, with distinguished academics joining us as speakers from across the United Kingdom and abroad.
