Title: Is Gatorade the Only Source of Electrolytes? 
Description: Students will consider the marketing campaigns of Gatorade to help identify what makes a substance an electrolyte.  Students will plan and conduct an investigation to test common ionic and covalent substances to determine if the substance is an electrolyte or non-electrolyte when dissolved in solution.   This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
