Winter Roadshow 2019 - Volunteer Sign Ups

Sign up here!

"Hey this looks cool, what is it?"
We'll be visiting places in Cambridge and the surrounding areas for a week towards the beginning of December to show kids that science is interesting, relevant and fun! We want to spread this message as much as we can, and this "Winter Roadshow" helps us achieve this goal.

"Who can help? And when exactly?"
We're looking for scientists, mathematicians, medics, engineers, computer scientists, etc... Anyone who would like to do some fun and free science outreach. Most of the roadshow will run after the Michaelmas term ends (from 5th December) so you don't have to worry about missing lectures in term-time. There is also an event on Sunday 1st December with the Institute of Physics. Finally, we have a CHaOS+ day on Wednesday 11th December, where we will demonstrate to older children (year 10+) rather than the more usual years 4-9 on the other days.

"Wow that sure sounds like a lot! How much am I committing to? Also why should I help out?"
You can sign up for as little or as much as you like. By doing CHaOS, you'll get to...

...inspire the next generation of scientists,

...put something on your CV,

...have fun doing something different for a day, some interesting, like-minded people,

and most importantly... lots of free food!

We do keep you well fed - and note that any necessary expenses, such as food and travel, will be covered by us!

"I do like free food, but alas! I have no experience in science outreach..."
No experience is necessary! If you're a student at Cambridge, you almost certainly have enough knowledge to demonstrate. We also have detailed descriptions and explanations for each experiment.

"I have more questions and I want to talk to your lovely committee more!"
If you've got any questions about the event or about CHaOS generally, please get in touch with us at, or find us on Facebook and Twitter!
