Slime Time!

In this program, students will become Slime Scientists! We will use special lab equipment and practice safety procedures in learning about basic chemistry, polymers and molecules, and non-Newtonian substances. We’ll spend a little time talking about flow, viscosity, and states of matter before moving on to a hands-on experiment to experience sheer thinning and sheer thickening for ourselves. After that we’ll practice our skills in the lab using the Scientific Method, create a hypothesis, and then finally move on to making your very own lab-made unique batch of slime to keep.  Adult supervision is needed for this program — teachers and chaperones get to be part of the messy, slimy fun!

Grades 3-8
