Non-Newtonian Fluid ExperimentWhat will happen when you mix a liquid with a solid? Hmmmm. Not only will this little non-Newtonian fluid experiment to teach a bunch of scientific principles, but it will keep the kids busy for hours and clean up is easy if you can throw them and your utensils in the shower!

You Need:

12 oz Corn starch
Water
Cake Pan
Spoon
Food Colouring (optional)

1. Place cornstarch in cakepan.
2. Add a few drops of water and food colouring to cornstarch until the mixture is very goopy.
3. Pick up the liquid and let it run through your fingers, and then bang it so that it feels solid.

Like quicksand, you have created a ‘non-Newtonian fluid’ that is both a liquid and a solid at the same time!
