Zeal Credit Union's Incredible Science Machine: World Edition Featuring a US record of 242,518 total dominoes toppled and a Guinness World Record for the Largest Domino Circle Field!
18 Builders from the US, Canada, Germany, and Austria spent 10 days building the Incredible Science Machine: World Edition, their 2nd annual event. The purpose of the event is to introduce chain reaction and domino building as a hobby and inspire kids' interest in STEM subjects. This year's theme incorporates the world's greatest cultures and has a domino and chain reaction section representing each continent.
The chain reaction sections are risky by nature and during the live event some of them did not work. Luckily, backup pendulums are used to continue the action to the next section, so there were no breaks in the fall down. For the failed machines, test videos were used as replacement footage for the purpose of having a more complete video.
