CORBIN — By Jeff Noble, Staff Writer
The state Department of Agriculture wanted to make students at Saint Camillus Academy “Kentucky Proud.” They did that Tuesday by sending down their Mobile Science Activity Center to nearby Sacred Heart Church, so the students could do activities related to Kentucky agriculture and the environment.
Pictured are 11 students in the 3rd Grade who were making corn-plastic biodegradable “bouncy balls.” Program coordinator Matthew Hayes (center, standing) said yellow and green food coloring will give the bouncy balls their distinctive color for the kids.
The center (inset) is a 42-foot-long trailer with 10 workstations that goes all over Kentucky. “I’m one of two of us coordinators, and we cover the whole state. These kids are excited. They’re out of the classroom,” said Hayes, a Rockcastle County native.
