Science experiment in year 6

Our bubble had a great time doing a science experiment making ‘oobleck’! It is a non newtonian fluid, which means it changes from a solid to a liquid depending on the force that’s put on it. Charlie put it brilliantly – “When I squeeze it, it’s a solid. When I let go, it’s a liquid!” It was a lot of fun but very messy… Apologies for the state of their clothes…

If you fancy doing this from home, mix 1 part cornflour to 1.5 parts water. You’ll know when you’ve got the right mix because it will suddenly become very hard to stir!
