Education for Schools & Groups

We do not offer tours of our lab. The FACES Laboratory is a working forensic lab. We must maintain the security and confidentiality of our active forensic cases. Therefore, we are no longer able to invite members of the public into our facilities. We do not offer any opportunities for job shadowing, however, any of our staff may be available for interviews at their discretion. 

We do offer presentations and lectures about forensic anthropology for schools, libraries, civic groups, etc. 

  • Each presentation is a general overview of forensic anthropology and the FACES Laboratory. 
  • We offer two different presentations: a more basic presentation with a focus on the skeleton for younger children and a more detailed presentation for older children and adults. 
  • Presentations last between 45 and 60 minutes 
  • You can schedule a presentation to take place in a classroom on the LSU campus or we can travel to nearby schools, libraries, and other locations. 

Schedule a Presentation

Make sure that you schedule your presentation as soon as possible. Our timeslots fill quickly and you must plan ahead to get your desired day and time. 

Contact our Outreach Coordinator, Emily Michon (, for more information. 

Provide your first choice of date and time here.

Note: We receive more requests each semester for presentations than we can provide. It is important that you contact us early to secure a time slot. We reserve the right to deny or postpone a presentation if we have already scheduled all of our time slots for the semester. While we are able to travel to locations in or near Baton Rouge, all on-site travel must be approved by our Outreach Coordinator. Please contact us for more information. 

I authorize that all information provided on this form, including any and all academic and personal data may be shared with the LSU FACES Laboratory to initiate the scheduling of presentations. This data will be retained indefinitely. To learn more about privacy at LSU, please see the LSU Privacy Statement:
