Rainbow flame incident injures 5 students in Virginia
I shouldn't be surprised at this story, but I am. 5 students and 1 teacher were injured at W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, VA this morning. (click here to hear the description from a student)
that has caused injuries and teachers getting fired* and lawsuits being filed in this country time and time again.
Another reminder that the American Chemical Society's Committee on Chemical Safety specifically asks teachers to "Stop Using the Rainbow Demonstration."
