We did some great work today exploring states of matter . We looked at Oobleck, a mixture of starch and water that's actually kind of tough to classify. It looks and feels like a liquid until you push or pull on it with great force.
Finally the kids thought of ways to improve the experiment and new lines of research.
- Try different temperatures (Nachshon)
- Can Oobleck stop a bullet? Can you swim through it? (Ella and Tzofia)
- Use hot water and cold water and see which one will make the spoon sink faster. (Hillel, Lavi, and Eliana )
- How does it happen? (Yoni)
