Students at Finger Lakes Technical and Career Center recently combined classes to collaborate on lessons, and the outcome was overwhelmingly positive. In Education Professions, preschool students were learning about community helpers and the careers that might fall in that category. High schoolers in the class reached out to the EMS Academy program and invited them into the classroom to share their expertise.
Mr. Stobie also joined to talk to the preschoolers and share some of the “gadgets” you may encounter in an ambulance. He also shared a PowerPoint with High School juniors about being an Emergency response individual. He discussed how they go about dealing with injured or frightened children while on scene. The presentation was very beneficial to both preschool students and Juniors in the program.
In addition, Mr. Trickey from the Seneca Castle Fire Department stopped by with a fire truck and the preschool students loved being able to sit in a real fire truck, and play with the lights and sirens. They were even able to spray water from a tank. Mr. Trickey also talked to students about the role of a firefighter and what it might sound and look like. All in all, the students were enthralled and were able to learn from one another. When classes combine and knowledge is shared, all students are able to benefit!
