Ex-teacher charged in classroom experiment injury

Indianapolis — A former Indianapolis science teacher faces charges stemming from her role in a classroom experiment that left a student with a burned wrist.

Twenty-three-year-old Asia M. Moses surrendered Monday to face charges of neglect of a dependent resulting in bodily injury and criminal recklessness. She was released Tuesday after posting bond.

The Indianapolis Star reports the 14-year-old student was burned during a chemistry class Moses was teaching April 9 at Tindley Accelerated School.

Court documents say the girl found a YouTube video of an experiment that involves pouring rubbing alcohol on your hand and lighting it. That video shows the flame burning out quickly and leaving the person's hand uninjured.

Moses allegedly suggested the student repeat the experiment and when the girl did she was left with wrist burns.
