Oobleck Fun at STEAMfest

By: Rob Adams on April 14, 2014

We helped put on a great activity last weekend! We built a tank to contain a non-Newtonian fluid, called Oobleck, with is roughly equal parts water and cornstarch. You can read about STEAMfest here.

You can see us finish off the tank build and a stop motion of the army of volunteers filling and mixing the oobleck.

Dustin Timbrook from Lowe Mill took some great shots of kids running across the oobleck in slow motion. I’ve included his Facebook video posts here and here.

I have it on strong authority that we will see another STEAMfest next year. I look forward to it. Or at least I will after recovering from this weekend!
