Oobleck, the Solid Liquid

Oobleck, the Solid Liquid



  1. Fill the bowl about 1/2 way with water.

  2. Add a small amount of corn starch and stir with the spoon. Keep adding corn starch until the mixture is about a little thicker than cake batter.

  3. Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid, which means that is not quite liquid or solid. Try hitting the surface of your Oobleck with the palm of your hand. Now, try resting your hand on the surface. What happened?
