Oobleck

By: Alexei, Eric, and Josh

Special Effect:

We mixed together cornstarch, water, and green food color into a bowl. When we did this the substance became a solid when pressure was applied.

Chemistry Connection

The chemistry connection was that the oobleck stiffened when pressure was applied. It was able to do this because the cornstarch is able to move at the speed of the force.

Safety Precautions

We wore goggles, closed toed shoes. Also we mixed carefully and followed the directions.
