Science Club

In Science Club, we were looking at slime, specifically: non Newtonian liquids. This process involved looking at surface tension and how the particles behave when they change between a solid and a liquid. We used cornflower and water to create our slime, plus a little bit of food colouring to make things look cool. We discovered that the quicker we impacted the slime, the more solid it felt furthermore, the slower we impacted it, the more liquid the slime felt.
