The Great Biomedical Bake Off

November 2, 2016

The Great Biomedical Bake Off is on for next Friday, November 11! From 1-2pm in room 4142, we will be immersing ourselves in the wonderful world of baked goods: cookies, cakes, pastries, breads, pies– you name it, we’re open to it!

We are looking for BAKERS to show off their culinary prowess and TASTERS to help choose the winners of this most auspicious bake off. TASTERS will be asked to make a donation to participate ($5 suggested). All proceeds will go towards the NC State SECC Giving Campaign.

If you plan on participating, as either a baker or taster, please sign up at the link below. This will ensure that the bakers will be able to make enough for everyone (within reason). 

Fast facts:

PRIZES: There will be fabulous prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places as voted by the tasters!

BAKERS: Please cut your entry into sizes appropriate for sampling.

Set-up: Bring your bake to the Fishbowl (4018 in EB3) between 11 and 1 on 11/11

TASTERS: Please bring a donation to enjoy all the baked goods!

HOW WE WILL JUDGE:  Each taster will receive 3 tokens to vote for the baked goods they like the best.

WHO CAN ATTEND:  Anyone and everyone is invited to attend as either baker or taster. However, we can only guarantee enough baked goods for those who sign up to attend, so please use the sign-up link above to let us know you’re coming!

All are welcome–undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff, faculty, friends and families.  Just be sure to sign up on the google link above..

Carolina Hurricanes Game

May 25, 2016

Hi everyone!

We’re organizing an event for BME to go to the NHL Carolina Hurricanes game on Tuesday, February 23, at 7 pm.  If you’d like to attend, please add your name to the google spreadsheet below by Monday, 1/18 at 5pm. 

The department will be covering the cost for the BME graduate students. If you wish to bring additional guests, indicate that on the spreadsheet, and we’ll purchase their ticket so we’re all in the same section. Please bring cash on game day to cover the cost if you’re bringing a guest. You should get an email with the exact cost after the tickets are purchased but they should be around $10/person.

Please arrive no later than 6:40pm to get your ticket from us on the 23rd. We will likely be inside near the front entrance.

Claire Hall,
Social Chair
