Friday After Thanksgiving Chain Reaction 2009

In 2009, over 1,100 people came, participated and watched as artist and renowned chain reaction creator Arthur Ganson led one of the MIT Museum's most popular annual events. Teams from all over the country bring a link, which is then connected to another link and becomes one giant contraption, set off at the magic moment by Ganson. Engineering principles, laws about motion and energy and all kinds of other science - including the natural world - pop up during the Friday After Thanksgiving Event at the MIT Museum, held annually in Rockwell Cage Gymnasium.

All chain reactions: 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012
