Oobleck is a fun science experiment from Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleck it's were a green blob terrorized a kingdom.

Oobleck acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is  used on it. You can roll it up into a ball and then stop then it will ooze out of your hands


Step 1: Materials

Supplies need:
-a bowl it gets a bit messy
-measuring cup
-corn starch
- you could also use food coloring(optional)
What I used was some coloring for frosting

To start just use two cups of cornstarch and 1-1.5 cups of water.
The behavior it exhibits is because it's a non-Newtonian fluid.<br /> I've always wanted to put some of this on a sub-woofer, but even more so I've wanted to fill a pool with it :P<br />
