Everyone has heard about the health effects that resulted from the change of the source of water for the city of Flint. What was the role of science in Flint’s water becoming unsafe? In this session, attendees will participate in a low hazard hands-on activity that demonstrates at least four chemistry concepts to model what happened with the water. Methods for explaining the issue with a variety of students or audiences will be discussed.
