Once again CHaOS enjoyed running "Crash, Bang, Squelch!" as part of this year's Cambridge Science Festival on the 12th of March. The event was extremely busy and everyone that attended looked like they enjoyed the fun hands-on science on show. The event was full to capacity all day and the seven spectacular talks throughout the day were also very well attended, along with our team-up workshop with the Cambridge Robogals!
For more information, take a look at our report here!
What is "Crash, Bang, Squelch!"?
Crash, Bang, Squelch! is a day of hands-on science experiments that takes place in the University of Cambridge Department of Zoology each March, and is run by the student society Cambridge Hands-On Science - more fondly known as CHaOS. On one Saturday in March we take over a large lab, filling them full of fun, interactive science experiments, each of which is demonstrated by a friendly student volunteers. The first "Crash, Bang, Squelch!" took place in 1998 and we've continued to develop the event each year.
CHaOS is grateful to the following organisations for their sponsorship of our Science Festival events:
The Royal Society of Chemistry mid-Anglia branch
The Institute of Physics East Anglia branch
