                                          Cornstarch Experiment

Cornstarch experiment is one of the most fun and interesting science projects for kids. A mixture of cornstarch and water make something that is known as a suspension. It looks like a liquid and acts like a liquid until a force is applied to it. This mixture is known as Oobleck. Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid. It is made up of tiny, solid particles. When you just tap on it then it will act like a solid surface. If you try to push your fingers slowly then you will be able to push it like a liquid because you are giving enough time to particles to move. You can make Oobleck yourself as well.

Requirements: –

  • 1 cup of water
  • 5-2 cups of cornstarch
  • Mixing bowl
  • Food coloring (optional)

Procedure: –

  • Take the cornstarch in the mixing bowl.
  • Add the water to it and stir well.
  • If you want your Oobleck to be colorful then you can add food coloring as well.
  • Keep adding water until it feels like a liquid when you are mixing it slowly.
  • Now your magic slime is ready. You can squeeze, scoop, and squish it slowly.

Concept: –

Oobleck is different from all typical liquids or solids. This fluid acts more like quicksand than water.
