Event description

Description

Bake Your PhD is a cake design competition for PhD students at the University of Southampton.

The goal? To bake a cake (or other baked good) that visually portrays the topic and findings of your PhD!

On 28 April, from 12.00-13.30 the competitors will be showcasing their products in The Cube.

Attendees: Sign up now to attend! Every student and member of the public attending also gets to be a judge. Winners and prizes will be announced at 13.30.

Competitors: Any PhD student is allowed to compete (for FREE), so submit the form below now and get your place before places run out! There will be prizes, and this is a great chance to share your research with fellow students (and the public) in a fun, relaxed way.

This event is part of the Festival of Doctoral Research 2017. If you like the sound of Bake Your PhD, be sure to check out the other events too.


For competitors:

  • To sign-up we're looking for a short abstract (150-300) words about your research: this is to accompany your cake on the day.
  • Sign up via this Google Form: https://goo.gl/forms/3jao9fFIIlyYREI43 (or email s.vanderplank@soton.ac.uk if that doesn't work for you)
  • Email s.vanderplank@soton.ac.uk for further details or questions.
  • We will be contacting all competitors 2 weeks in advance of the event to confirm your participation: if you fail to respond to this email, we will assume you are no longer competing.

FAQs:

  • Can I enter the competition in a team? YES - provided the majority of competitors are PhD students.
  • Can I bake my PhD as something other than cake? YES - anything baked is permitted, as are select other goods (i.e. chilled cheesecake: but contact the organisers if you're preparing something unbaked just to check your eligibility!)
  • So do I just take my thesis and bake it? NO - Don't bake a printed copy of your thesis, that might end in flames. We're looking for a cake or other baked good that communicates your PhD in a similar way that a poster might.
  • Is there an entrance fee? NO - It's free to enter the competition, and it's free to attend.
  • Are the unlimited places for competitors? NO - there's only space for 40 competitors/teams, so sign up your Baked PhD idea now.
