Friday After Thanksgiving: Chain Reaction
Making a chain reaction allows people to explore their own creativity, and see how their unique contraptions relate to a larger whole. No matter how different the chain reactions, inevitably, with a little string and duct tape, they all work together beautifully.
How does it work?
The MIT Museum's F.A.T. Chain Reaction event allows people to join the fun as spectators or as participants. Participants can register to bring their own contraptions. Artist and inventor Arthur Ganson, renowned chain reaction creator, is on hand to help with connections and play master of ceremonies for the action.
Can anybody do it?
Of course! Participants range from Girl Scout troops to artists and engineers, from MIT clubs to high schools and family teams. Teams have come from as far away as Michigan and California!
How to get involved:
Register (form not yet active) to build a link in the chain reaction or just plan on attending as a spectator for the event. For participating teams, please read the construction guidelines.
