Attention F.A.T. teams! Want help designing your contraption for the Friday After Thanksgiving Chain Reaction Event? Have an idea but not sure how to get started? Looking for feedback on your designs?
In November and March we honor the contributions of women in science and encourage young girls to stay excited about all things STEM.
Grab a friend—and a beer—and enjoy an evening of tinkering and building a Rube Goldberg-esque device. We’ll supply the materials you’ll need to construct your link. Then, at the end of the evening all of the devices will be connected to set off one giant chain reaction.
Help build or just observe this massive chain reaction made up of dozens of individual devices designed by teams from all over the country.
Join Dr. Emile Bruneau, Research Associate and Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication, to explore how human cognitive habits encourage bias, separation, and conflict.
