The European Chain Reaction is a science/art project and competition which challenges primary schools across Europe to create, film and upload a "Rube-Goldberg/Robert Storm Petersen-like" chain reaction. Through the contest, children learn more about science and computers in a fun way and in the end all submitted chain videos are merged into a big cross-border European chain reaction.
