Forensic Anthropology offers exciting opportunities for students to learn new concepts and apply them to current or historical objects. For a hands-on experience, teachers can schedule a time for classes to visit the museum to participate in the one of two Forensic Mysteries School Programs at Q?rius, the Museum's new education space. The School Programs page includes links to the forms for registration for field trips in these or other School Programs. Please call 202-633-4039 or send e-mail to with additional questions about programs or logistics.

The Q?rius website itself provides many resources in forensic anthropology and other topics for teachers to use in the classroom, even if they cannot make the field trip to visit the Museum.

This website, Written in Bone, offers several videos and a web comic that can be helpful resources for the classroom. See our resources page for details.

Visit the NMNH Education home page to learn more about the Museum's education programs and more resources for teachers.
