Inland Empire Campus Partners with Bing Wong Elementary School
October 24, 2016
Recently, The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University, hosted a pasta immersion course for over 50 sixth graders from San Bernardino’s Bing Wong Elementary School.
During the "Chemistry of Cuisine" course, students created egg pasta from scratch, three different sauces, and a fresh basil and pine nut pesto. Volunteers from The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire assisted the students with their work.
The sixth graders learned to work in a true culinary team, following sanitation and safety guidelines and fundamental skills of pasta. At the end, sauces were demonstrated, their pasta was prepared, and they were able to taste their creations. Students also took home recipes and a special “Tiger Culinary Course” completion certificate signed by instructors from The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire.
The school’s principal, Ryan Rainbolt, walked the room engaging students and asking them to think of an adjective that would describe the techniques and process of different steps.
The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire has partnered with Bing Wong Elementary School on several occasions and principal Rainbolt has visited the campus several times. The next partnership involves the creation of a 3D model of a tiger, the Bing Wong school’s mascot.
