NCPFS - Workshops

Students in the Classroom 

The Program’s first major activity in 2005 brought the nationally acclaimed five-day workshop Bugs, Bones & Botany ® to North Carolina State University . This patented course developed by forensic entomologist Dr. Jason Byrd is designed to provide instruction to investigators in the proper documentation, collection and preservation of entomological, anthropological, and botanical evidence.

The course is open to law enforcement agencies, university students, and other interested parties. Course instruction is comprised of morning lectures followed by afternoon hands-on field exercises. Tuition fees cover all expenses of the workshop including instructors’ fees, course materials, equipment, classroom and conference room space, field location, and participant meals (breakfast and lunch). Bugs, Bones and Botany© is offered annually in May at NCSU
