Science: Odd Ooze

Blog for Science Experiment: Odd Ooze



Last week was science week. In the senior room, we got into groups for science projects. In my group was Tara, Paul and myself. Our project was called Odd Ooze. We needed corn flour, water and food colouring for this project. You had to mix all those ingredients together in a large bowl. Let’s say you punched the substance in the bowl really hard, it would feel like punching a wall. But if you put your hand in slowly it would feel like it is a liquid. The ooze is made up of tiny, solid particles of corn suspended in water. This type of mixture is called a colloid. It behaves very strangely. I enjoyed making this substance and experimenting on it. I hope I get to do this all over again next year.
