Crash, Bang, Squelch 2022!

Crash, Bang, Squelch!

Crash, Bang, Squelch! (CBS!) is the biggest single event of the CHaOS year, taking place as part of the Cambridge Science Festival. For Crash, Bang, Squelch! CHaOS has over 50 experiments in one place, for more than 2000 visitors to see during the day. In 2022, CBS! is taking place on Saturday 19th March 2022, and is open to the public from 10am-5pm. Like all CHaOS public events, CBS! is absolutely free.

Come along to Crash, Bang, Squelch! to see lots of exciting hands-on science experiments! You can have go yourself and find out lots about why things work they way they do!

Our experiments will show you why hot air balloons stay up, what happens when you split water in half, how your lungs work, and much, much more…

We also run a series of talks in a lecture theatre next door to CBS!, with lots of exciting experiments that are just too big to fit into the normal lab.

Times are listed on this year’s event page: pre-booking is strongly recommended as there will only be limited tickets on the day!

Please note that CBS! is usually very popular – in 2022 we will be offering pre-booking for timed tickets
