**CHaOS need student volunteers**

Cambridge Hands-On Science (aka CHaOS) is a student society which aims to show children and families that science can be fun and exciting, and something that they can understand.  We’re now recruiting volunteers for our **2013 Summer Roadshow** – where we take a mini bus of volunteers and a van full of experiments camping around the country for 5 weeks of the summer (**Monday 1st July to Sunday 4th August**), visiting schools and town halls.

**What would I do?**

Most volunteers come on the roadshow with us for around a week.  You’d get to talk to lots of children and families, while playing with fun/noisy/messy science experiments. We’ll show you how these work before letting you have a go for yourself in schools and town halls. In the evening we do sociable stuff, such as bbqs at the beach or our campsite. It’s great fun, great for the experience in engaging the public/your CV, and much better than a week of real work! Coming on the CHaOS Summer Roadshow shouldn’t cost you any more than your time – our sponsorship covers costs such as train tickets to come and meet us + get back home, food and camping.

**Sounds great! How do I sign up?**

You will need fill in our signup form, which you’ll find here: http://www.chaosscience.org.uk/roadshow2013

There’s lots of other information about CHaOS and the experiments on our demonstrator website: http://www.chaosscience.org.uk/volunteers_home

If we’ve missed something, or you just want to find out more, do drop us an email to contact@chaosscience.org.uk.

Every junior member is automatically a member of the GAC and so entitled to vote on the proposed allocation.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – Cambridge Humanities Review Easter 2013

Dear All,

We are pleased to announce that, building on the great success of its last issue in Lent Term (attached to this e-mail) which featured amongst others former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and Labour peer Maurice Glasman, the Cambridge Humanities Review is seeking submissions for this Easter. The Review was launched to resurrect the spirit and the ambition of the Cambridge Review, a University journal which lasted for over a century and over whose pages such luminaries as Bertrand Russell and Simon Schama once presided.

We will gladly print essays of 1000-2500 words on topics of your own choosing in any area of the arts and humanities, nourished by your own academic research or by any extracurricular interests you may have. Essays should be challenging and detailed, but we ask that they be of interest and accessible to an audience wider than that of the writer’s own individual discipline. Furthermore, we also accept reviews of 1000-2500 words of new academic works or exhibitions and collections based in Cambridge. If you wish to see a list of suggested titles, please visit our website at www.cambridgereview.weebly.com

All those who wish to receive a free copy of the review are asked to forward their name, college and pigeon-hole number to hjd33@cam.ac.uk or log-on to our website. All successful contributors will be fully acknowledged in the printed copy of the review of which we will print several hundreds copies to be distributed throughout the colleges, faculties and departments of Cambridge.

Submissions should be sent to daniel.matore@cantab.net before Saturday the 25th of May.

With best wishes,

Daniel Matore
