Oh, the Things You Can Do with Oobleck!

North Lamar second grade student, Addison Barber, grabs a handful of oobleck as classmates Brenda Castillo Rojas, Haley Blevins, Lily Beard and Montgomery Clark wait their turn to play with the gooey substance.  

As a fun science project, Everett Elementary teacher Amy Haage took a classic science experiment of mixing corn starch, water, and food coloring to make a substance called oobleck. The non-Newtonian fluid has properties of both liquids and solids yet it can drip like a liquid but be squeezed, punched, or walked on like a solid.  The name ookbleck comes from the Dr. Seuss book, “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.”  In the story, ookbleck, a gooey green substance, fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom.
