Simple Slime Experiment

Simple Slime Experiment


Make this gooey, sticky slime that behaves very strangely under pressure! All you'll need it water, corn starch and food colouring.  See video instructions below or download a a step-by-step printable sheet for instructions.  

Science behind the experiment: 

Your cornflour slime behaves like a liquid and a solid at the same time. The more pressure you apply to the slime, then the harder it gets as particles push against one another. Less pressure allows the particles to slide over one another. Try experimenting using different amounts of pressure from your little finger to your whole hand!
