A Colorful Non-Newtonian Quicksand! Just add water! Oobleck acts like a liquid and a solid! It's a Liquid That Behaves Like a Solid on Command, and feels like Real Quicksand.
- LIQUID AND SOLID: Looking for a fun, easy and inspiring kids science kit? Children will find hours of fun and stimulation with Oobleck Slime. Imagine the curious facial expressions your kids will make when they sink their hands in a substance that acts like a liquid and a solid! It feels like real quicksand! It's one of the most in-demand, non-Newtonian (a substance that doesn't follow Newton's Laws of Motion) STEM activities.
- STEM: Our STEM products encourage young scientists to create new and exciting experiences that foster the skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity.
- HOW DOES IT WORK?: If force is applied to the fluid, it behaves like a sold. If little or no force is applied to the fluid, it behaves like a liquid. When you slap the Oobleck mixture, you force the long starch molecules closer together. The impact traps the water between the starch chains to form a semi-rigid structure. When the pressure is released, the Oobleck flows again. This concoction is an example of a suspension (a mixture of two substances), one of which is finely divided and dispersed in the other.
- WHAT YOU GET: Yellow Oobleck Powder 16 oz (454 g), instruction guide and black light. (Oobleck is offered in 6 colors: blue, white, green, yellow, pink and orange.)
- BLACK LIGHT: Use Under a Black Light For More Science Fun. Due to an exclusive pigment, our yellow, white, green, pink, blue, and orange Oobleck glows under black light.
- USE AND REUSE: Just needs water to come alive. Add water in small amounts and continue mixing until desired consistency is achieved. Oobleck can be dried out and reused time and time again to keep the imagination and learning going!
- SAFETY: Always safe, non-toxic and designed with an antibacterial formula. Won't stain your hands.
