Science in the Courtroom: The Woburn Toxic Trail

Is it possible to use a popular book to explore interfaces between science, citizen action, public health, and the US Legal system? In short, it is, and this resources from the Science in the Courtroom series makes it possible. Developed by Professor Scott Bair, with funding from the National Science Foundation, the resource uses the landmark case of Anne Anderson et al. versus W.R. Grace & Co. and Beatrice Foods, Inc. to explore a range of issues. The website contains three levels of exploration, including a mock trial and discussion questions, along with a Resource Collection. This last section includes photographs, newspaper articles, animations, and much more.
