( our memento from our unfinished funny preparations)

now, as a big THANKS to my pupils who didn't succeed in finishing the second half of our Chain reaction called: 'MEET OUR LEGO TOWN Zadar, Croatia'We've decided to make a Smilebox just to show that we did have a lot of motivation and ideas to do something very visualised, realidstic-our Zadar peninsula in a Chain reaction. Unfortunately, I got ill and this is our memento to fantastic, creative moments spent with me and my class 4b (+ Lea ).
Hoping you all a lot of success!If it were me, I would give each and every one of you the maximum points! FANTASTIC CHAIN REACTIONS IN 2013!

Much love from Zadar, Croatia
Ksenija Vidmar-Nincevic & my motivated team

PS: we're hoping you'll find our trials as a good funny show-time: we will never forget our clumsiness & trials...

The Czech TECHNICAL chain reaction


Thank you all for putting off the deadline for us. We were able to create following chain reaction!!! Enjoy!!!


6th grade from Flataskóli in Iceland

Dear partners
Here is the chain from Iceland this year. We are going to call it „Volcano“ because we life on a volcano island, so if we are not getting an eruption naturally we make it ourselves. Viktor, one of our boys, got that excellent idea to make an eruption chain and it cost a lot of speculations about how to fix it and you can see the result on the video. We put baking soda, water, red colour and soap into the “mountain” and the vinegar in the bowl made the volcano erupt. We made our chain over and over again until we managed to let it work through the whole way and we are very proud of our little volcano chain J
Greetings from 6th grade in Iceland and their teachers

Nine Bulgarian children aged 5-6 years have worked together as a team and fully unaided have created their  chain reaction with toys from the school. We hope you will enjoy their achievements and will like them.
 While the children were working on project European Chain Reaction 2013, they were amassing scientific experience, were really happy and were having great fun.

Have fun watching the video!

We wish all success!

2013 European Chain Reaction Turkey

Hello dear friends,

We are the last minute partner of this project. We are only 6 years old .  After we had watched your videos wanted to join this project . Unfortunetly, we had so little time :( We set this old cassettes ourselves and our teachers helped us a little :) The weather is cold and we decided light our stove. We enjoyed so much. I hope you enjoyed too.

With Love,

Little Bees

ECR 13 - Scotland

We present our technical chain reaction- which has been 100% created and put together by the pupils of primary 6. They received absolutely no help from adults at any point. There are admittedly some imperfections, but we are nonetheless very happy once again to have taken part in the project.

We hope you like it, and wish all teams the best of luck in this year's contest. We are certainly enjoying watching all the videos appearing!

ECR13 - Germany - UP and DOWN

ECR13 - Germany - UP and DOWN from FSK on Vimeo.

UP and DOWN, this year's title for our chain reaction miraculously intertwined with
some difficulties on trying to put the video online.
Strangely, the VIMEO website was down for a day, so our video had to be uploaded
to the other big video platform for the time being.
Now we are back to normal, but just in case...

Belgium presents: The Belgian Technical Chain Reaction 2013

Hi to all you Einsteins, 

Belgium proudly presents its technical chain reaction 2013!

In the last couple of weeks 33 junior-scientists have been working hard to create this chain and we hope you will like it!

Of course you will also have learned a lot about science in the last couple of weeks while building your own chain reaction and that's why we are very curious to see if you are smart enough to figure out how the submarine used in this chain reaction works.  This submarine was homemade by a team of 4 students under the guidance of a skillful dad. Who will be the first to write down correctly in a comment how this submarine works?

We hope you will have as much joy watching this chain reaction as we had creating it!

We look forward a lot to watching all your chain reactions!

Best wishes for 2013!

The Belgian Team

Here, we begin the technical chain reaction videos.
This is from C.E.I.P. San Juan, in Antequera (Málaga). Spain.
We hope you like.
