Science outreach with CHaOS

Cambridge Hands-On Science needs you!

CHaOS is a student society which aims to show children and families that science can be fun and exciting, and something that they can understand. We’re now recruiting bio-natscis, phys-natscis, engineers, medics, vets, mathmos and more for our 2016 Summer Roadshow – where we take a minibus of volunteers, a van full of experiments and camp around the UK for 7 weeks of the summer (27th of June – 10th of August), visiting schools, town halls and Scout jamborees.

What would I do?
Most volunteers come on the roadshow with us for around a week. You’d get to talk to lots of children and families, while playing with fun/noisy/messy science/maths/engineering experiments, explaining what’s going on. In the evening we relax, sharing funny stories from the day over dinner, sometimes BBQs(!), at the campsite. It’s great fun, fantastic for experience in engaging with the public, and much better than a week of real work! This year we’re heading to the South West and you can sign up here

No is experience necessary (we are running a training session before the Roadshow), food, transport and accomodation are all provided! For more information have a look at our website or get in touch using
