The Chain Reaction Challenge

In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the concept that small causes can have large effects. Initially, it was used with weather prediction but later the term became a metaphor used in and out of science.

The task that teams grapple with is to create a deliberately complex contraption in which a series of devices that perform simple tasks are linked together to produce a domino effect in which activating one device triggers the next device in the sequence. The activity is kicked off with the larger team being broken up into smaller units. We love the look on the faces of the team members when we hand them the set of material that they need to work with – nuts, bolts, lego bricks, domino chips, bulbs, toys, nails, wires, springs, marbles, pencils, straws…. Well, almost everything that is left over in our stores when we clean up! Or so it seems.

The challenge of course is simple (chuckle chuckle): Just put together all the parts to create a mechanism that works.

A few key parameters:
