Cell Structures Represented in Cake!

May 24, 2021 | News

Students in Year 7 have been learning about cell biology in science this term. Students have been learning the function of the different parts of plant and animal cells and were asked to build a model cell in a medium of their choice.

Jack and Charlie made an incredible model cell with cake as the basis for the cell. It was decorated with strawberry laces as photosynthesising chloroplasts, a donut nucleus to store the DNA and a mini-marshmallow cell wall to control the movement of substances in and out of the cell. A yum-yum for the vacuole and chocolate sprinkles for the mitochondria topped off this excellent project.

We were incredibly impressed by the effort that the boys put in, and are reliably informed that the cake tasted as good as it looked. Congratulations boys for putting so much effort and creativity into your learning!
