Spanish Field Trip to “El Cantinero” Mexican Restaurant

Students at NYU Metro Center’s Upward Bound and 1199 WorkForce Summer Academic Component Spanish classes were guests for lunch at local restaurant, El Cantinero. NYU Staff member, Ms. Esperanza McCarty, took the Spanish classes to the Mexican restaurant to enhance their learning by experiencing a bit of Mexican culture.

Inside El Cantinero, the class experienced authentic Mexican music of both traditional and contemporary varieties (including Mariachi) as well as décor expressive of Mexican culture. They also exercised their use of the language by reading the Spanish descriptions on the menu and ordering their food and beverages in Spanish


Pre-RN Community Service and Field Trip

Our Pre-RN students fulfilled their community service requirement by conducting workshops at the 1199SEIU Child Care Centers. Workshop topics included hand washing, healthy foods, and exercising through rotations in three classrooms. Pre-RN students utilized many well known games and songs and incorporated health education creatively in order to help the children understand the importance of staying healthy and ways to be healthy.

After this community service, Pre-RN students went to the Bodies Exhibit for a tour. The Exhibition provides an intimate and informative view into the human body. Curious Pre-RN students had their questions answered by professional medical students who were available at every station.
