Physics "Cake Off"

NEWS  SENIOR SCHOOL , SCIENCE

Upper Five 1 finished learning the IGCSE Physics syllabus last week, so we decided that now was a good a time as any to have a "Physics Cake-Off"!


Students went above and beyond to create some incredible cakes:  

3

Jade Irish created "Abstract Physics", a model of the universe complete with galaxies and an EM wave;

5

Willow Bearder made a gorgeous galaxy creation, complete with milky way stars;

 

 

 

 

9

 

Chloe Philpot created a fantastic Fluorine atom;

7

Chloe Robert made a genius cupcake parallel circuit (the voltmeter was connected correctly);

10

 

Mrs Winter made a solar system cake with space rocket;

12

Harriet St Pier's Solar System cake had planets individually modelled from different materials; (both Mrs Winter and Harriet only wished they could have made their solar systems to scale, a disappointment quickly alleviated once they'd eaten more cake.)

14

Emily Penney made a cake with the famous Orion Constellation; 

16

Sylvie made the Sun complete with Coronal Mass Ejections;  

18

Eloise expertly modelled the bending of space-time with her earth / space cake;

20

and last but certainly not least was Lucy Pratt with her Brownian Motion cake, a brownie in a trolley on wheels, which she had made herself!  Wendy in the refectory judged this to be the winning cake and Lucy was duly presented with her certificate. A fantastic achievement by all those that took part and possibly our favourite ever physics lesson. #physicsisphun
