    In this paper the project Chain Experiment is presented. It can be viewed as a competition or as a popularization activity for science, technology, and phy- sics in particular. We present the basic idea of a toppling-domino-like chain of contraptions that are operated one after another, and each demonstrates dif- ferent physical phenomena. The evolution into its current form with three different types of activities is brie fl y described. The emphasis of the paper is on the impact of the project on physics education. The ways in which physics students, physics teachers, and participating pupils pro fi t from the different project activities are presented in detail.
