Acid: Boon to bane.
Acid Attack is a horrific act occurring in many countries around the world. It is a form of violent assault defined as the act of throwing acid on one’s body with the intention to disfigure, maim, torture, or kill. Acid is a corrosive substance and can damage skin to a greater extent. An activity on poster making and blog writing was done by chemistry students of MYP 5 and DP 2 to give more light on this issue. Students of MYP 5 prepared amazing posters on spreading awareness about acid attacks and the aid for it, while the DP2 students posted blogs giving information on how and why these attacks happen. Students explained the chemistry of acids and how it affects the victim’s physical and emotional health. This activity helped students to developed learner profile attributes like thinker, communicator and principled.
