We worked in groups to think about the properties of solids, liquids and gases.
Can you walk on a pool of custard?
Off course, the answer must be no we all thought! Well, not after our experiment today. We investigated making cornflour slime, which acts in a very strange way. Keep it moving in your hand and it acts like a solid, but the second you stop moving it, it acts like a liquid. We watched a video clip that showed a man running across a giant pool of this custard like mixture.
