This case study is designed for students in an introduction biology course at the end of the cell signaling and gene expression units.  (May be used at higher levels as well) The students are asked to come to a decision about the regulation of estrogen (or estrogen like compounds) in the water supply. 
Learning objectives include:
1.    Students will synthesize and evaluate scientific data gathered from animal model systems.
2.    Students will identify sources of endocrine disruptors in the environment.
3.    Students will recognize the social and environment impacts of regulating endocrine disruptors.
