CHaOS Summer Science Roadshow 2010

This summer, the CHaOS Roadshow will again be heading across the country for four weeks in June/July. As well as visiting 12 schools, we'll be running free public events in 8 venues in East Anglia and the South-West. See below for our Roadshow route.

All events (except school visits) are free and open to the public from 12-5pm. Drop in any time to see some exciting hands-on science experiments!

All public venues are wheelchair accessible. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our events, including any questions about accessibility of venues. We'd be particularly keen to hear from you if can help publicise our events in any way (newsletters, posters, newspapers, radio etc), and can give you material if you get in touch.
