Cinque Terre

Let your reaction bring solution.

Chain Reaction is a mechanism in which a series of devices are deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion. Things are linked together to produce a domino effect in which activating one device triggers the next device in the sequence. .

    Set your grey cells to the task, let your imagination run wild, let creativity take the lead and let your approach be totally unconventional. Enthral the judges and the audience with your ability to convolute the simplest of actions with an infinite array of steps! All you need is planning, innovation, efficiency in steps and use of materials to stay in the reckoning because it is ?The only place where you will get more marks for beating around the bush!!?
