Non-Newtonian Dubstep: A Fun Monday Science Experiment

Filed under: Jen |

It’s called oobleck: a non-Newtonian fluid that you can make at home.  It acts like a liquid when poured, but apply a little bit of force to it, and it’ll turn into a solid substance:

To make your own oobleck you’ll need one cup of water, two cups of corn starch, and some food coloring.  Mix it up in a bowl and that’s it.  You can play with it like putty, or find a subwoofer and make it dance!  Be careful though: oobleck can be messy!

Bonus fact: you can even walk on “water!”
