Mr Rollins' First Year Science Club is proving very popular on a Tuesday lunchtime. This week was no exception as the pupils had a go at making 'Oobleck'!

Oobleck is a classic science experiment and if you haven't seen it in action it is absolutely fascinating!

Oobleck is a non-newtonian fluid. That is, it acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it. You can grab it and then it will ooze out of your hands. Make enough Oobleck and you can even walk on it! Oobleck gets its name from the Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleck where a gooey green substance, Oobleck, fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom.
