When can CHaOS visit schools?

For the last few years, we have spent 3 weeks in late June/July visiting schools all over the country as part of our Summer Roadshow. We are also sometimes able to run events for schools in the Cambridgeshire area during the early part of December, and sometimes at Easter.

Our demonstrators are (almost) all students at the University of Cambridge, so we are generally unable to run events during university term time. (In most years this falls roughly in early October- early December, mid January - mid March and the end of April to mid June).

Sadly, we are not able to visit schools during National Science Week, since we run a large event at the Cambridge Science Festival at that time.

We would love to hear from schools that would like to host a visit from us. Please feel free to contact us if you might be interested, or would like more specific information, or fill in our visit request form.

Our reports on our previous Summer Roadshows are good sources of information about the sort of activities that we run in our events.
