Oobleck: Solid or Liquid, or Both? [Interactive]

Create Oobleck, a non-newtonian fluid using only two simple ingredients and your hands. Experience this substance acting as both a solid and a liquid under different conditions, and have fun getting your hands messy!

Participants will need 1 cup of water, 1.5-2 cups of corn starch, a bowl or other container, and a spoon/hand to mix with. Optional: newspaper, towel or other material to place under bowl as this can get messy!
