Interested in forming a team and participating in our Community Chain Reaction, May 2018? Or just curious about what goes into creating a chain reaction? Come spend a couple hours with us and explore what makes these contraptions work. What are triggers? What's the importance of humor, of slowing things down, of replication? And how to incorporate the fun into your own classroom!
Intended for those who want to do some exploring of different materials, mechanisms and movement AND for those who may never have brought a group together to do something like this.
NOTE: Through prototyping these activities, we've found that chain reactions are best suited for students age 8 and above. Younger children often take significantly more adult attention to feel successful, so we recommend younger children explore chain reactions outside of class time with a dedicated adult partner.
