Great way to demonstrate some physical properties of newtonian liquids and then compare them to regular ones. Plus it requires gunge, & VERY LOUD MUSIC (any excuse!) . Theres loads of info on the web and you could always download some other video clips to further demonstrate non newtonian properties, ie, running across a swimming pool full of custard (i kid you not) you would probably also need some cling film/similar to carefully line the bass speaker with too, unless you want to demonstrate putting liquids into electrical equipment and the length of time it takes an ambulance to arrive!! (joking aside, DONT DO IT) science is much more fun when you dont wind up in hospital.
