Cambridge Hands On Science

CHaOS (Cambridge Hands-On Science) will once again be demonstrating at Strawberry Fair (on Midsummer Common) on Saturday 2nd June to families, children and occasionally a few enthusiastic fair goers! The event will run 12-6pm with set-up/clear-up time either side (approx 10.30am-7.30pm) and will include a FREE LUNCH!
Demonstrating at Strawberry fair is a great way to get some hands-on science demonstrating experience before our summer tour, or a compact alternative if you can’t make it. Whether you need a break leading up to exams (which could still leniently be called revision) or a fun wind down after finishing this is the event for you!
Please sign up by Wednesday 23rd with the link below:

Lady Margaret Players

Fed up of highlighting? Weeping over essay plans? 
NO MORE. Come to Clickbait and laugh an evening away. 
Alfred Leigh takes a deep dive into the rabbit holes of the internet in his comedy Powerpoint, following a trail of Clickbait. Through this, he’ll reveal to the public the weird, the wonderful, and the things he really regrets clicking on.
From a history of Clickbait to an examination of the bottom feeders who inhabit the unknown realms of the web, Alfred uncovers the inhuman forces that govern the underbelly of the modern world.
A surreal web-comedy that combines a lecture with procrastinating.
What a way to spend an evening. 
1st – 3rd June. 9pm. Palmerston Room. Fisher Building.

Sports Results

The College Basketball team defeated Darwin 50-41 in the Cuppers Final to take the trophy back to Johnsbridge.

In cricket, the season started with the team beating touring team Hetorai by 73 runs (Selway, 100*). In Cuppers, the team beat Clare by 9 wickets before their match against Christ’s was abandoned due to rain (with John’s set to win by Duckworth Lewis by 25 runs). The team then lost to Emma by 10 runs, meaning progression in the competition is in the balance.

Theremin Performance

Johnsbridge: do you like odd instruments, modal harmonies, spectacularly-renovated Gothic buildings, and not paying for things?

Then you’re invited to a free concert of original repertoire for ondes Martenot and theremin at The Old Divinity School of St John’s College Cambridge on Thursday 17 May, 8-9pm!

The programme will include Olivier Messiaen’s “Feuillets Inédits”, Joseph Schillinger’s “Mouvement Électrique Et Pathétique”?? and Darius Milhaud’s “Suite” for Ondes Martenot and Piano, performed by me and Paul Jackson (piano).

It would be a great pleasure to see you there!

English Tutor

Cambridge startup is recruiting online English tutors, work at home, £20/hour 

We are PINK, a new educational company founded by Cambridge students. In our program “Talent Kids” we deliver online English courses to primary school students (age 6-12) in China, most of whom have very limited knowledge in English. Now we are recruiting students and graduates from Cambridge and Oxford as our long-term tutors, with £20 per hour payment. The tutor should speak English at native or fluent level, can normally commit to at least 2 hours work per week (full flexibility on the work time), and most importantly, have a passion in language education. Experiences in teaching especially in teaching Chinese kids will be beneficial but not necessary. Speaking Mandarin is absolutely unnecessary. The tutor will follow our standard curriculum, and deliver video chat with Chinese kids through an interactive virtual blackboard to improve their listening and speaking skills. If you are interested please send CV to Jieyi, our recruitment officer, at jl807@cam.ac.uk who will later arrange an interview at Cambridge. Any questions or concerns can be sent as well. This job advertisement is valid till October 2018.

Sports Results

Rugby Cuppers Final:


St John’s 35- Queens 13.  This was Queens’ first Cuppers final since
1985, but they proved no match for the dominant John’s pack led by Deano, Fionn
and Dimi as John’s cruised to victory, scoring four tries in the process.

The Women’s Netball team also won the league this weekend as
Downing conceded, leaving the John’s girls unbeaten in the league this season.
