I am completely embarrassed to say that despite the fact that I’ve been a science teacher and homeschooled my kids…
….I’ve NEVER made Oobleck until recently!
Wow…what have I been missing!
This is a super easy experiment and you probably already have all the ingredients on hand right now!
You want to mix the cornstarch and water until you get a mixture that is not a
paste and not watery. It will be about 3/4 cup of cornstarch to 1/2 cup of
water. You do not need to be exact.
What is so amazing is that this is a Non-Newtonian fluid…..when compressed
it turns into a solid. When the pressure is released, it turns right back into a liquid!
I must warn you though…it will get messy!
