FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

A museum in Flint is hosting a program for children about how to clean dirty water.

The "Water Works" program takes place Monday at Sloan Museum. The event offers a chance for children to challenge their engineering skills to design and test a filtration system.

Advance is registration required. The educational program takes places as the city faces a crisis with lead-tainted drinking water.

The museum earlier announced that it was hosting a traveling exhibit on the science and history of the city's water system in response to the crisis. The exhibit, titled "Water's Extreme Journey," is scheduled to run at the museum through May 8.

A localized portion of the exhibit features a timeline exploring the history of Flint's drinking water beginning in 1873.
