Monday was the first day of the sold-out Kids in College program at the Kauai Community College.
This is the first year for the Kids in College program, and according to Barbara Bulatao-Franklin of the KCC Office of Continuing Education, the course allows middle school students an opportunity to experience college on a first-hand basis.
Working under the supervision of culinary arts instructor Clarence Nishi, the 15 students enrolled in the inaugural class had the task of creating the dishes they would enjoy for lunch.
The menu included hamburgers, baked potatoes a la French Fries, pumpkin squares and a breakfast burrito for snack which, due to the time it took to construct, became part of the lunch menu.
The class meets from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with another class starting next Monday.
