What If? Machine 2017

All teams are now fully booked, but we'd still like to share the What If? with you from 1-5pm.

 

Returning for 2017, The What If? Machine is a celebration of making, creating, designing and building! A What If? Machine is an over-engineered, Rube Goldberg inspired contraption designed to send a chain reaction around the entire ground floor of The Silk Mill. Sign up a team to create a section of this fantastical machine! From families, makers, friends and businesses… all are welcome to contribute to the What If? Machine, and help us create the biggest machine yet!

Teams: 10am-5pm
