HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) Teachers from Flint and nearby communities are learning more about their water quality.
They're getting a better understanding at Michigan Tech this week. Teachers are attending an institute to conduct research on different water resources, including waste, river and tap water. They're even learning how the water crisis in flint took place.
Teachers are finding ways to address wastewater and drinking water issues to students.
"That's an asset to our community, that right now people are confused about, so being able to integrate that back into the classrooms where students and young people are able to understand what happened is a really important component," said Leylah Sanker, coordinator at University of Michigan-Flint.
The teacher's institute ends on Friday.
