We introduced the children to Oobleck! This fun material, made of corn starch and water, is a non-newtonian substance because it is neither a solid or a liquid! That is, it acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it. You can grab it and then it will ooze out of your hands. Oobleck gets its name from the Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleckwhere a gooey green substance, Oobleck, fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom.
