Science After School Club

The science club had a fantastic time exploring cornflower slime. There is lots of science going on in this simple experiment. Cornflour is made up of lots of tiny starch particles and when it is mixed with water, the starch particles become suspended in liquid as the water moves in between them. The children found out that when they moved their fingers slowly through the mixture, it acted like a liquid. When they punched it or squeezed it, it behaved like a solid.

The Science bit!
