friday after thanksgiving chain reaction mit museum photoJoin us at the MIT Museumís annual Friday After Thanksgiving Chain Reaction Event featuring over 25 mini chain reactions linked together with the help of artist and chain reaction creator, Arthur Ganson.

The MIT Museum's Friday After Thanksgiving (F.A.T.) Chain Reaction is a one-of-a-kind engineering feat that must be seen to be believed! Attend as a spectator or build your own Rube Goldberg-esque link and be part of a giant chain reaction at our fun and family-friendly event!

Host Arthur Ganson will be on hand as teams put together their own contraptions, link them all together, and a ball is set in motion moving from start to finish in a giant loop!

This event takes place from 1-4 p.m. at MIT's Rockwell Cage Gymnasium, 106 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA 02139.

Online ticket sales end 11:59 pm on November 22. Ticket includes admission to the MIT Museum on Nov. 23.

1 pm - Doors Open
