FAT Chain Reaction Event

November 24, 2017

Celebrating its 20th year!

Attend as a spectator or build your own Rube Goldberg-esque link and be part of a giant chain reaction at our annual F.A.T. Chain Reaction Event! Popular hosts Arthur Ganson and Jeff Lieberman will be on hand as teams put together their own contraptions, they’re linked together, and a ball is set in motion moving from start to finish in a giant loop.

Bring your families, bring your friends. This a one-of-a-kind, must-be-seen-to-be-believed engineering feat you won’t want to miss. And this year's event promises to be 2X the fun.
