Dust off your apron and get your whisk at the ready.

To celebrate National Science Week, the University of Adelaide Palaeontologists are hosting their first ever, virtual bake off. This online event will blend two fields of science – the chemistry of baking and palaeontology – into one tasty morsel, all whilst giving entrants the opportunity to show off the culinary skills they honed while social distancing at home.

Entry into the competition will be free and open to all – no need to register.

Competitors are free to bake whatever they like and enter as many times as they like; however, all entries MUST be palaeontology themed. There will be two categories: an open category (all ages) and a junior category (under 12 year of age).

To enter, simply snap a photo of your creation (with or without you in the photo*) and send it to any of the University of Adelaide Palaeontologists’ social media accounts or via email. Include your first name and the category you wish to enter. Entry will open on Saturday 15 August and close on Thursday 20 August, with winners to be announced on Friday 21 August.
