Science of Slime

Slime is described as a non-Newtonian fluid.  This means that it is neither exclusively solid nor liquid.  These fluids are affected by factors other than temperature.  Most types of slime are examples of polymers.  Polymers are made up of very long chains of molecules.

Participants will have the opportunity to make 2-3 types of slime and the librarians will have recipes available for more.  Join us at the library and see what you can discover about the properties of slime.
