Brady Dolan of Ann Arbor is 13 years old and has been creating and building with dominoes since he was 6.  He and fellow members of the “Incredible Science Machine” team are competing Saturday, July 29th at Trillium Academy in Taylor and hoping to set some American domino building records.

Brady and his mother Annemarie Dolan joined 89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry in-studio to talk about his craft and do a building… and knocking down demonstration!

Watch Brady activate a dominoes chain in the WEMU studio here:

The Ann Arbor teen’s biggest dominoes project involved using 15,000 dominoes, which he built in the basement of his family home.  He has his own YouTube channel, and his mother said she and Brady’s father discovered YouTube because of her son’s channel and his thousands of followers.
