MIT Annual Friday After Thanksgiving (F.A.T.) Chain Reaction

Friday 11/23/18, 1pm - 4pm , Rockwell Cage (MIT), Cambridge

Whether it's the reaction induced between two creative contraptions or the joyful reactions sparked on the faces of spectators, 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 and watch teams link a giant, Rube Goldberg-esque chain reaction at our 21st annual F.A.T.! Popular hosts Arthur Ganson and Jeff Lieberman will be on hand as teams put together their own contraptions, link them together, and then set a ball in motion, moving from start to finish in a giant loop.

This year's theme is Twenty-WON! With so many games whose winning condition is to reach 21 points, we're looking forward to watching the creativity unfold.

Event Schedule:

1 pm - Doors Open
1 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. - Activities
1:15 p.m. - Interview of Builders by Arthur Ganson
3:30 p.m. - Chain Reaction Begins
