Welcome to the CHaOS Schools Home Page!

CHaOS exists to bring science to children in a way that is exciting, fun and relevant. Our range of fascinating experiments will surprise and entertain, whilst introducing children to scientific concepts and ideas that will remain with them well into the future. Our experiments are aimed at children in school years 5-8 (ages 9-13).

CHaOS can visit schools both in the Cambridge area and further afield. We often visit Cambridgeshire schools in December, whilst almost all our visits outside the Cambridge area happen during our Summer Roadshow in July.

Please note:

  • We cannot visit schools during National Science Week in March as we are busy running Crash Bang Squelch as part of the Cambridge Science Festival.
  • Our sources of sponsorship mean that we are only able to visit state-funded schools

CHaOS takes child protection and health and safety issues seriously. All our experiments are risk assessed and checked by the University of Cambridge safety office. Our activities are fully insured under the University's public liability insurance and we endeavour to ensure that our demonstrators are covered by up-to-date enhanced DBS disclosures. Please see our safety policy and child protection policy for further details. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
