Oobleck – What not to do

Oobleck messup

I have fond memories of making oobleck when I was a child. What is oobleck? It’s the solid-liquid state of cornstarch mixed with water…and yes! it’s a real word!

Lesson learned: Mix cornstarch with water thoroughly before adding it to any mixture. Do not add cornstarch directly to a pot of boiling water.
