Classroom partner connections for Askinosie Chocolate team and neighborhood middle school.
Pipkin Middle School, located just around the corner from the factory, hosts Askinosie Chocolate team members several times per year in their classrooms. A “welcome back” tour of the chocolate factory at the start of the school year sets the stage for a learning adventure that flexes to meet the needs of the curriculum each year. Askinosie regularly connects with Pipkin middle schoolers on many topics including innovation, developing a brand identity, geographic differences among cocoa origins, survival in extreme elements, the concept of kinship, and personal vision writing. We always mix in some chocolate to sample and lots of smiles.
