Global STEM education director visits students at Goodwill science camp

Students at Goodwill science camp learn from Global STEM educator

ROANOKE, Va. – More than 50 students from grades 5-7 are taking part in the Goodwill science camp.

The director of global stem education, Dr. Robert Corbin, joined the campers doing hands on activities.

Corbin gave students a chance to innovate, test theory and practice through the creation of a catapult that launched Tic-Tacs.

“I am really glad we did this because it's fun and it educated me too and it's right up my alley because I want to be an engineer and I got to build something,” said Steve McKeen, a participant of the science camp.

The science camp is part of Goodwill's efforts to help students discover the value of education.
