BABSOC’s Big Bonanza BBQ

BABSOC held their first BBQ event of the year and it was not one miss! We received an overwhelming crowd almost amounting to 150 hungry mouths which included a mix of undergraduates, honour students, post-graduates, post-docs and even the high and mighty academics. We supplied a variety of beef, pork and veggie sausages along with an assortment of drinks, straying away from the convention canned soft drinks must I add! We hope that kept everyone happily munching away! The BBQ was a great opportunity for BABS students, the new and old, to share and exchange their study experiences and stories as well as perform some quality networking with a pen in one hand and a sausage in the other. We also received a generous hand in running the BBQ by a few undergraduate students who we enslaved and worked their heart and soul away! Just kidding, we fed them plenty, hopefully…Beside the point, on behalf of the BABSOC executive team we...

BABSOC Beer Brewing

BABSOC’s first ever Beer Brewing Workshop was a day not to miss! We had a great mix of attendees: undergraduates, honours students, post-graduates, post-docs and even some academics. We used the innovative ‘Brew in a Bag’ system. We created two different brews, a Pale Wheat Ale and an Amber Ale. The workshop mashed two different malts (Pale Wheat Ale grain mix and an Amber Ale grain mix), followed by the hops and yeast. The two brews had different combinations of hops added and the yeast used to ferment it will provide unique flavour profiles to each brew. The brewing was led by A/Prof Chris Marquis, Lucien Alperstein and Lawrence Menz. Lucien was leading the practical aspect of the workshop, introducing the different elements of brewing and what we were doing specifically that day. Chris provided extra information on each stage of brewing, including how to customise your brew. He also provided some great anecdotes and brewing history. We finished the day with...

BABSOC x BABS Photo Competition

Bringing out the artist talent of BABS, BABSOC in collaboration with the school of BABS launched a new and exciting photo competition amongst all students, staff and researchers. With our new E26 biosciences building currently empty with endless walls of white, this event opened up the opportunity to feature exceptional artwork amongst the people of BABS whilst being able to proudly decorate our building with the aesthetics of science. The event was an amazing success, with the entrance of almost a hundred participants and a social outreach of countless more. This was a skyrocket in engagement of the BABS community with entries ranging from the ancient academic druids of BABS to our foetus undergraduates. This event also marked the beginning of our new social media channel, Instagram @babsoc.unsw, which was used to share every submission made on Facebook in hopes to "get with the trends" of the young'ins.
