Having fun preparing muffins: Christian Crane and Nate Hong.
On Wednesday, April 26, a group of students at Cooper Middle School engaged in an educational experience, while raising money to host their CBI trips (Community Based Instruction Field Trips) that students partake in to work on different, community and employability skills. The students were able to go into a public environment to buy ingredients for the coffee, tea, and other pastries they were selling. This helped them learn more about handling money, counting values, and interacting with their customers. Not only did they have a fun and interactive learning experience, they were able to provide teachers with homemade goods, and raised enough money to host even more projects and field trips in the future. Since this was such a successful project, they hope to soon host more pop-up cafes.
