Water Talk News
Flagstaff Water Services hosted several teachers as part of the Arizona Science Center’s Science Teacher Residency (STaR) Program last month. This hands-on program provides participants with four days of instruction at the Science Center and then one day of asynchronous learning to help address common misconceptions about STEM subjects they will be teaching in the classroom.
As part of their physical science module, Rio de Flag Water Supervisor Cory Mueller provided the teachers with a tour of the Rio de Flag Water Reclamation Plant to get a firsthand look at the science happening in industries local to them and their students. From the intake of wastewater by gravity to its treatment and distribution to customers, or its release back into the environment as A+ reclaimed water, the plant is a great place for learning.
The STaR Program’s tagline encourages educators to “never stop wondering. Never stop imagining.” Thanks for inviting Water Services staff to share their expertise and provide a dose of wonder into everyday life!
