Explore concepts of materials science in an oozy, fun way with our new SLIME! exhibition. This highly interactive and tactile experience gives learners of all ages the opportunity to experiment with surface tension, viscosity, density, elasticity, vortices and even slime in nature!
Matter Splatter offers a unique opportunity for students to dive into the world of material science and engineering. Exploring how scientists’ ability to understand, control and combine materials produce some of the most advanced technology in existence today!
In this activity, students will turn milk into a moldable plastic by causing a chemical reaction that bonds protein molecules (casein) to create a polymer!
