Summer Roadshow

About the CHaOS Summer Roadshow

CHaOS have run our Summer Science Roadshow since 2002, and it's grown to become a 7-week tour in 2018! We take a van full of our hands-on experiments and a mini-bus full of enthusiastic demonstrators to a wide variety of venues around the country. Our roadshow involves as many as 90 student volunteers, and we've visited locations from Devon to Glasgow and lots of places in between!

The roadshow takes place mainly in July and August each year, and the CHaOS team visits a range of schools, town halls, community centres and festivals. You can read about our previous roadshows in more detail below by downloading copies of our roadshow reports.

If you have a venue that you'd like us to visit during the coming year's Roadshow, please let us know.


This year's CHaOS Roadshow

In 2018, the CHaOS roadshow will be heading cross country for seven weeks from the beginning of July all the way through to the middle of August, visiting schools, town halls, public events and jamborees across the country. Starting off from Norfolk, we'll be heading through Essex to Bristol and Swindon, before arcing all the way back via Cheshire and Lincolnshire. Watch this space for more information soon!
