Virtual Summer Cooking Class – 9 Jul 2020

A cooking masterclass from your kitchen

Join our virtual cooking masterclass here.

With the height of summer upon us, we hope everyone’s staying suitably cool and hydrated (and socially distanced, of course). Next in our series of virtual Oxford10 events is a cooking masterclass led by none other than our Vice-President, Maggie Ewen!

How does it work? Before the event, we’ll share the recipes on our website (see below), and you’ll get all the listed ingredients prior to the event. 

On the day itself, we’ll cook the meal together and see how similar or different the end results are! 

For this episode of ‘Masterchef Ox10’, we’ll be having a delicious summer salad to start, followed by baked salmon, and finally no-bake cookies to top the meal off with dessert. 

Do join us on the 9th of July – register here!

List of ingredients:

Summer salad:
1 red pepper (yellow pepper is fine too), a handful of watercress, 1 avocado, 1 teaspoon of mustard (preferably grainy mustard but dijon is ok too), 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, a small bowl to make the dressing, a bowl to mix everything together

Baked salmon:
Salmon fillet (1-2 slices), a frying pan, some olive oil

Using Maths to Clean-up our Oceans – a talk by Dr. Tom Crawford – 4th August 2020

Where does river water go when it enters the ocean? Rivers are the major source of pollution in the oceans and if we are to clean them up, we first need to know where the majority of the pollution is concentrated. By creating a mathematical model for river outflows – verified by laboratory experiments and fieldwork -– the goal is to be able to predict which areas are most susceptible to pollution from rivers and thus coordinate clean-up operations as effectively as possible.

Virtual Movie Night – Jun 2020

No, that isn’t the logo of U.N.C.L.E., even if it looks familiar somehow.

Get your tickets for a night in at the movies! Register here.

Following a successful first virtual gathering, we are hosting a movie night for the Oxford10 family! We asked for your votes on a highly curated list of highly rated movies, and the results are in – we will be screening the thrilling action-comedy The Man from U.N.C.L.E!

“But coronavirus! How do you maintain social distancing?” you might ask. Fear not, for we will be using the Netflix Party app. It’s a free extension that you can download and which will allow you to watch any Netflix movie (such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) with others from the safety of your home!

(Newsflash: We’re not being sponsored by Netflix or Netflix Party.)

So grab your popcorn, blankets, friends and family, sign up here (so we can send you the link) and come and enjoy an exciting night of fun.

Virtual Get-together – May 2020

Join us for our first virtual get-together. Register here!

Hopefully you have all been good and staying at home. The Oxford10 Committee has been too. But we’ve been working hard to help the Oxford10 community stay connected in these weird and (admittedly not so) wonderful circumstances.

Our first event is a light get-together for everyone to just catch up and find out how everyone is coping (or not). We are also looking to organise more events, including an online pub quiz and movie night, and would very much like to crowdsource! Bring your ideas, tell us what you’d like to have – and if lockdown ends early #hallelujah, we can always organise them in person!
