Oscar Night and Farewell

Friday Night saw the EC Junior Programme’s very own Oscars Night. With awards up for grabs like, King of Cool, Queen of Cool, Next World Leader and Best Dressed Student, there was a storm of students campaigning for votes from fellow students. Prizes included the famous Cambridge University Mugs, filled with sweets and handmade fudge. The winners were also to be presented with their very own Oscar statue. In a hard fought battle Beslan claimed King of Cool, Aleksandra claimed Queen of Cool, Elizaveta claimed Best Dressed Student, and Rashid was announced the Next World Leader. Aswell as the Oscar’s awards the party was also a chance for everyone to say their goodbyes to the students leaving on Saturday, we wish all our leavers the best for the future!

Game’s Night

Monday evening saw the construction of some weird and wonderful structures by EC Cambridge Junior Students. The object of this game was to construct something out of newspaper, cups and celetape that could hold an egg as high off the ground as possible. The winning team created an amazing, triangular based structure that held the egg a little over 7 feet off the ground! See below!   After this challenge the teams started the SPEED MUMMY CHALLENGE. Where the objective was to create an original mummy in the quickest time with nothing but paper. We saw some great entries from the teams, see their hard work below: Game’s complete the students headed off home in celebration, ready for another day at the EC Cambridge Junior Summer Programme. Cambridge University Mugs were given out as prizes! The highly valued objects are difficult to obtain in Cambridge due to their demand and popularity.
