Links wanted for chain reaction


This holiday season, embrace the feeling that it's just one thing after another. Participate in the MIT Museum's annual Friday After Thanksgiving Mega Chain Reaction.

Participants create their own chain reactions. It can be as simple as books falling against one another or as complicated as a Rube Goldberg invention. Then, artist/inventor Arthur Ganson masterminds the choreography of a "mega-machine," created by linking participants' creations. The giant chain reaction that results is set off at the end of the program.

Bring your own chain reaction, or just come and watch. The MIT Museum's F.A.T. Mega Chain Reaction will take place Friday, Nov. 25, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Rockwell Cage in MIT's Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center.

Participants must register by Saturday, Nov. 19. The fee is $10 per four-person team; $5 for each additional team member.

The spectator fee is $10 for adults; $5 for students, seniors and youth under 18; free for children under 5 and those with MIT ID. The spectator fee includes admission to the MIT Museum, which will be open until 6 p.m. that day.
