Covert missions, cameras, cakes and quizzes!

Hi everyone! It’s been another busy day here at Cam Prep, but first off a massive congratulations to last week’s photography competition Karen Chen!

Congratulations to this week’s photography competition winner, Karen Chen. The theme this week was ‘architecture’, and Karen took this stunning photo of a Church spire.

Today the students had both their major and minor classes, which saw a guest speaker come to talk to students, science experiments, trips into Cambridge’s city centre and many more equally exciting activities.

After their afternoon classes, students had fun playing garden sports in the college’s Deer Park, decorating cakes, taking part in a mysterious ‘Spy Mission’ problem solving activity, learning more about filmmaking from a guest speaker, and showing off their knowledge of superheroes in this evening’s quiz.

This afternoon, students who take Medical Science as their minor received a fascinating talk on ‘sleep, cognition and social recovery in psychosis’.




Social psychology students went into Cambridge centre to conduct social experiments.




Molecular Biology and Medical Science students teamed up to learn about extracting DNA.




Filmmaking students got hands on experience outside with the camera to learn more about the technical aspects of filmmaking, all in preparation for the short films they are going to shoot tomorrow.


40 students gathered this afternoon for cake decorating, producing wonderfully creative designs, and they definitely enjoyed eating the final products afterwards!


Students gave their seal of approval to the new badminton nets this afternoon, after they tested them in the Deer Park.



This evening, filmmaker and photojournalist Luar Klinghofer Bar Dov came in to give an engaging and insightful talk on a photography project she did about council estates in East London. She took photos of people who lived there in order to show the diversity of these areas and the strength of these diverse communities.



And finally, one of the students was so impressed with her friend’s drawings this afternoon that she sent in some photos. Great work Ruby!
