CHaOS Demonstrator Section

Welcome to the demonstrator section of the CHaOS website. This page has a list of recent events that we've been looking for volunteers for. For events in the past, there's often a good chance that we'll be running a similar thing the following year.
  • CHaOS Summer Roadshow 2013

    CHaOS is a student society that runs fun science events outside term time, both in Cambridge and further afield. We're running a five week long science roadshow with our favourite experiments, visiting schools and town halls around the country during July and August. We need keen volunteers to demonstrate these experiments to children and families. If you like explaining science to the public, and enjoy camping and BBQs, the CHaOS Roadshow could be for you! CHaOS will cover your travel and living expenses, so volunteering will only cost your time!

    When?
    The Summer Roadshow is running for 5 weeks this year, from Mon 1th July - Sunday 4th August. This start date is the week after graduation, so is just over one week after most undergrads have gone home.

  • CHaOS AGM 2012: Saturday 13th October

    CHaOS is a student society running fun, hands-on science events for thousands of members of the public every year. It's a great chance to talk about science with members of the public of all ages (mainly children and families), both in Cambridge and outside. Almost all of our events are out of term time, so fit in well with exhausting Natsci timetables! (though we welcome scientists of all persuasions, including medics, mathematicians, engineers, vets, compscis,...). If you'd like to be involved in making this happen read more below!

  • CHaOS at the Cherry Hinton Festival (Saturday 15th September 2012)
