Biology Bake Off gets young scientists in the kitchen!

Our students have been holding their very own Biology-themed Bake Off Competition to celebrate Biology Week 2017.

As part of the national event Biology Week 2017, organised by the Royal Society of Biology, Farnborough students have been holding their very own Bake Off as well as taking part in quizzes and creating posters with a Biology theme.

Students were tasked with creating cakes that represented biological topics that they learnt about in lessons, with designs varying from human anatomy and viruses to cell structures.

 

Instead of the famous Bake Off tent the tasting took place in a Bake Off biology laboratory and cakes were judged by Farnborough College’s very own Paul and Prue, Programme Manager, Emma Watkin and Education Director, Wendy Funnell.

“It’s fantastic to see students being so passionate about the subjects they’re studying.” Emma said. “They’ve really applied the knowledge they’ve gained in lessons into their baking. Well done to everyone who took part and made the event a huge success!”

 

Second place was scored by Access to Higher Education student, Andrea Nagy, with her eye-catching coconut eyeball cakes. However, A Level students, Reanna Allen and Leah Rumsey had the show-stopping winner with their 3D-model cell madeira cake.
