LIVE FROM MIT: Nord Anglia Students Get Inventive

April 22, 2016

Our students are now hard at work creating their chain reaction machines – an overly complicated invention that will accomplish a simple task such as turning the page of a newspaper, or filling a cup of tea. 

  • Nord Anglia Education students explore MIT and the Cambridge Science Festival.
  • Nord Anglia Education students explore the Cambridge Science Festival and MIT, building a chain reaction machine.

Each team is busy planning, cutting, taping, and building a unique machine out of simple, everyday materials. Then on Saturday, working together with other Nord Anglia students from 13 schools around the world, our students will connect their inventions to make one giant chain reaction machine for the first time—hopefully the biggest that MIT has ever seen.

In between tackling this challenging engineering exercise and participating in our exclusive programme of workshops led by MIT, they’ve also been exploring Boston, attending a Red Sox baseball game at the famous Fenway Park. Even there, science continued to be a central theme as students participated in an exercise to mimic reactions of a bio cell.

To see more pictures of our students building a giant chain reaction machine and other science festival activities search #NAEMIT. You can also follow our student journalists, Olivia Johnson and Caroline Johnson, via Instagram and Twitter!
