Forensic Education: Courses for young and old who are interested in forensic audio and video

I've got two announcements regarding forensic education to pass along.

First off, the Department of Justice (USA) is funding Professor Rich Sanders, of the University of Colorado, Denver, to establish a new National Center for Audio/Video Forensics. The full university press release can be found here. It is scheduled to be up and running in the fall of 2009.

Second, the South Carolina Governor's School for Science and Mathematics (USA) runs its popular Summer Science Programs (SSP) every summer. SSP is a residential summer camp for rising 8th, 9th and 10th graders from across the state. The reason I mention it here is that I have been asked to teach two one-week runnings of a new course entitled A Mathematical Tour of Forensic Science. If you are interested, you can find out more on their website.

Update: I am informed by the director of the SSP that students from outside of South Carolina are also very welcome to participate.
