Culinary Students Take a Field Trip to Kelly's Special Care Home

Students in the Culinary and ICE Centre courses
visited Kelly's Special Care Home
Students in the grade 12 Culinary Class got to take a break from cooking meals for the student operated Culinary Cafe when they visited Kelly's Special Care Home on May 7.

Along with many smiling faces, they brought delicious sweets for the seniors to try while students from Mr. Hallihan's ICE Centre courses showed off their new, futuristic technology. This included a 3D printer, button making, robotics and the Oculus Rift.

For many in this group of 22 students, this was their second time visiting the residents as many had gone on a past visit to introduce the seniors to this exciting technology.

This project, known as #seniortech, is an effort the Blackville School ICE Centre became involved in through Brilliant Labs and iHub. The project gives senior citizens the opportunities to interact with new technology and younger people.
