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.
