Blogateers, it was my birthday recently, so we made some cupcakes. As a group we headed down to the LRC kitchen and made some white cupcakes before snack time. After snack we headed back down and the kids all tried to decorate the best dang cupcake they could.
As you can see the cupcakes could barely handle the amount of decorations the kids put on them. At times seeming to be just a vehicle for more refined sugar.
This snowman constructed with marshmallow was particularly impressive. not sure how it stayed together, the crushed Oreos probably helped.
Not sure what is going on here but it looks like cookie monster going out to a dance club. In the end it was a very messy and incredibly fun time for all and I will be less afraid of baking in the future.
Blogateers, I don't know about you but I love cooking. Yesterday we all got together in the PLMS commons and cooked some fwench toast on some griddles I stole from BLMS impact.
When I do cooking projects I like to just set some ground rules, explain the recipe and then let the children sink or swim. I must say that we have some whisking experts here at PLMS.
There were only a few finished products that I myself would not have happily eaten. Mr. Derek ate two right after he broke a ping pong paddle.
Finally, last week one of our students had their retainer thrown into the trash on accident. But we finally found it!
Until next time Blogateers!
Blogateers, we had ourselves and Egg drop. The video above is the final stage of that. It shows one of the teams of engineers throwing their final design off of the PLMS sky bridge. Each team had 35 minutes to put together a contraption to protect their egg from cracking and then we did a test drop.
I asked each team to make predictions about what would happen to their egg. Each team got to watch all the other egg drops, so as the tests when on everyone became more and more confident that the eggs would survive.
I did not provide any examples or let the kids go online to see what other people had done in the past. ever design was an original PLMS creation.
Because everyone was so terrified of their eggs cracking on impact often the most dangerous part was unwrapping the whole creation to check.
