In this lesson, students view photographs documenting the Flint, Michigan, water crisis and explore the themes of environmental justice and the consequences of corruption. Residents of Flint, Michigan, have been facing a water crisis since 2014, caused by poor decision-making by the state government regarding the source and treatment of Flint's drinking water. The crisis calls into question citizens' rights to clean water and how our natural resources are allocated across racial and income lines.

Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
