How To Make Oobleck!

Oobleck is a mixture of cornstarch and water based on how much pressure is applied to it.
When the mixture is handled, it is formed into a ball but when pressure is released it flows into a liquid,
like texture. This suspension only contains two ingredients. Here is the method on how to create it.

Method:
What we need:
-½ cup of Cornstarch
-1 cup of water
-Bowl
-Measuring cups,
-Mixing tools
-Newspaper to keep area tidy
-Food Colouring (Optional)


What to do:

  1. Place cornstarch into the container
  2. Then add  water with the cornstarch
  3. If necessary and  more water or cornstarch until you gets a mixture that ‘tears’ when you quickly scrape your finger through it and then ‘melts’ back together again.
  4. Knead it and mix it with your fingers and see what happens
