STREAMWORKS

Education   Empowerment

The establishment of a STREAMWORKS, a strong network of coaches and a new STEM gym with practice field are making an extraordinary impact for students at Eastman’s global headquarters in East Tennessee. Since the formation of STREAMWORKS, an educational partnership powered by the Eastman Foundation, students involved in STEAM activities – specifically robotics – are noting a substantial change. For the first time, Dobyns-Bennett’s FIRST Robotics team earned a spot at the international competition and one of the local middle school teams advanced to the state tournament. STREAMWORKS supports local educational efforts in a number of ways and demonstrates that having the right resources and visionary leadership can spark change that empowers great success.
