To find, out, we started exploring a substance called oobleck. We were wondering if it is a solid or a liquid or both. As we explored we thought it was possible that it could be both!
Oobleck was a weird substance! It was a solid when you squeezed it and a liquid when you let it go. Fun fact: it is actually possible to run across oobleck as long as you move fast. Isn’t that amazing? It's really easy to make Oobleck. All you need to make oobleck is cornstarch and water. Food colouring is optional.
Here is the very simple procedure:
- Mix 1 part water 1.5 parts of cornstarch. (For example, 1 cup water and 1.5 cups cornstarch.)
- Spend 10 minutes mixing to get a nice homogeneous mix of oobleck.
- Add food colouring (optional).
That’s all! You can play with it as much as you want!
