Welcome to the CHaOS Volunteers Home Page!

CHaOS is a student society that runs fun science outreach events outside of term time. We run a number of events just before or after term in Cambridge, such "Crash, Bang, Squelch!" in National Science Week at the end of Lent Term. We also take our experiments on tour each summer, when the CHaOS roadshow visits schools and town halls around the country in June-August every year.

Our events are run entirely by student volunteers, based on experiments that have been built, bought and borrowed since we ran our first event at the Cambridge Science Festival in 1998. CHaOS events are funded by a number of charitable organisations- helping us out will just take some of your time. Our volunteers come from all science-related subjects (Nat Scis, Medics and Vets, Engineers, Mathmos and more) and range from first year undergraduates to final year PhD students. Some have explained science to the public before, but most of us did this for the first time at a CHaOS event!
