This is one of the experiments I have been learning about in my science unit.
Oobleck, named from a Dr Suess book.
A non-Newtonian fluid is a fascinating substance that, depending on the force applied, will act like a solid or a liquid.
You can roll it in your hands and create a solid ball, but as soon as you stop moving it will turn back to a liquid and ooze through your fingers.
You make this by adding 1 part of water to two parts of cornflour with some food dye.
This makes a huge amount of mess, but it is a lot of fun.
This last few weeks of starting an university degree has been a huge shock to my system. The amount of work and reading is HUGE. I don't know what I thought it would be like but I know i didn't think it would consume so much of my time.
Full time uni+ part time work+ no nanny= not enough hours in the day.
All the lecturers have assured me that if you make it through the first five weeks you will make it through the four years!
I hope so!
