Super Slime

Many students are familiar with silly putty and other slime products, however very few understand the science and chemistry that goes into making these products. This activity seeks to educate students on the reaction that creates slime as well as show how the physical properties of the slime change when different proportions of reactants are used. This activity addresses a wide range of topics including physical properties, polymers, and non-Newtonian fluids, as well as introduces students to the Engineering Design Process.
