OxHOS is a student-led science outreach society who run interactive science events in Oxford and around the UK every year
Do you like designing experiments and want to engage children and families in science?
Do you want experience of writing grants to scientific funding bodies?
Are you keen to tell the public how exciting and important scientific concepts are?
OxHOS are looking to appoint a new committee who will organise our events this year including our annual tour – The OxHOS Summer Roadshow!
Positions (open to both new and current committee members) available are:
- President (x2)
- Fundraising Officer
- IT/Website Officer
- Publicity Officer
- Schools Officer
- Volunteer & Protection Officer
- Logistics & Safety Officer
- Experiments Officer
- Subject Coordinators: Biology, Chemistry, Physics etc
- Social Secretary
If you have any questions about any of the roles then email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
We aim to have a collaborative committee where members all help each other out, as different roles will have different ‘peak times’ throughout the year. We meet for about an hour or two every 2-3 weeks, depending on how busy the OxHOS calendar is, and have socials too!
To apply to join our committee please email email@example.com with a few lines about why you’re interested in the role and any relevant experience you have.
Our AGM will take place on Thurs 18th January at 6pm at Worcester College (meet at the front gates) where we will be electing all positions and discussing our general plans for the year. If you’re interested in a position but can’t make the meeting, just let us know! Alternatively, if you’re unsure about whether our committee is for you, then come along and decide on the night!
For anyone who’s interested in joining OxHOS with less of a time commitment than the committee, become one of our fantastic demonstrators. Join the mailing list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for updates on training and events in the upcoming year.
We look forward to meeting our new committee and another fun year of Science Outreach Events!
Our 2017 Roadshow lasted four weeks between 17th June and 24th July, in which we visited schools in Oxford, Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and Southampton.
On top of this we did several public events including ; Oxford Science Festival, the Dinosaur Isle museum, the Isle of Wight Zoo and Winchester Science Centre.
