In addition to the popular Promethean Board, the department received various new kitchen appliances and learning tools to assist with other important life skills development. Connected to the room with the Promethean Board is a room with a washer/dryer, stove, dishwasher, cash register, a new air fryer and other common kitchen and everyday items the students can use. Several have tried out new recipes with the upgraded pots, pans and more! They are even working on creating a cookbook.
"I like the new SmartBoards because you can do lots of things with them and we use it for Math and Speech," said Maria Alzamora, one of the students utilizing the new equipment. "I like the new cookware because it is perfect to cook with. I can't wait to use the air fryer - I use one at home with my brother all the time!"
