Bay City educator's movie project aims to benefit youths


BAY CITY--To the arsenal of measures taken in the interest of young people's well-being, add a modern-day art form.

That's the idea behind the latest project being undertaken by Linda Flanders of Taproot, Inc., in Bay City. Flanders has embarked on the development of a mobile media arts lab using community education in this area. It's intended to deter substance abuse among young people while teaching science, technology, engineering, art and math by incorporating movie-making.
