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). Officially, sign-ups are now CLOSED, but if you still wish to bake and participate, please email email@example.com with your name, title of your PhD, title of the cake, and a brief abstract describing your cake/projects.
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.
- 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.
