The GESSS-Q 2019 Bake your PhD is open to all students.
Baking must be accompanied by a list of ingredients highlighting any potential allergens.
Baking must be accompanied by a title and an outline (e.g., brief statement, abstract, diagram) of how the baking represents the research.
Baking can be sweet or savoury.
Honors and Masters students are welcome.
The cakes will be judged on three criteria; how the cake represents the research, the overall presentation and, most importantly, how it tastes.
ANU RSES Bake your PhD
“Bake Your PhD started at the ANU Research School of Earth Sciences (RSES) in 2015, as part of our annual Research Student Conference.”
Tips for success
Think about the overarching concepts and ideas in your research, can you make an analogy of them with food?
All food is accepted; cakes, biscuits, pies, breads, savoury or sweet, etc.
Note: Our online form asks for the title of your submission and a brief abstract. But just in case your research fails to rise and you need a last-minute rethink, we will allow participants to make minor amendments to their title or abstract on the day. After all, cakes, like research, can go off in unexpected directions.
