The Michigan Engineering Pantanal Partnership team worked with school children in the Pantanal region of Brazil to heighten awareness about the importance of clean water. They conducted workshops teaching them how to examine water purity and build biosand water filters. The team hopes that the students will help spread awareness in the community about better water sanitation in order to alleviate a number of serious diseases that plague the area.
