Mathematical bridges, bar games and talent shows have all been happening at St Catharine’s this week.
Mathematical Bridge Building
Students immersed themselves into Cambridge culture with an engineering workshop where they constructed their very own Mathematical Bridge from lollypop sticks. In small groups, the pupils competed to see who could create the most stable bridges, which were later tested for their strength. The high levels of teamwork were exceptional and it was really great to see how well everyone was listening to their peers. From design and discussion to construction and competition, the activity showed what exceptional teamwork and bright minds could create, with strong and impressive bridges holding significant weight.
Bar Games Evening
In an effort to relax after a long day of hard work, ORA students at St Catharine’s participated in a series of games in the College Bar. With classic favourites like Twister causing uncontrollable laughter, pupils enjoyed spending an entertaining evening together.
ORA’s Got Talent
Alongside Clare College, pupils studying at St Catharine’s then got ready to amaze the audience with their hidden tricks and talents later in the week.
Soloists wowed the audience with their confidence and voices whilst guitar and piano players created amazing tunes much to the pleasure of those listening. On the more amusing side of talents, some groups formed dance troupes to choreograph routines that they laughed throughout, encouraging the spectators to chuckle too!
One student demonstrated his impressive Rubik’s Cube skills, another carried out a dramatic reading and some revealed hilarious comedy routines. With the acts performed and everyone eagerly awaiting to find out who the winner was it was announced that Varshini had dazzled with singing and was the ORA St Catharine’s talent champion – congratulations!
