There are lots of fluids we come in contact with in everyday life: water, toothpaste, gasoline, even air! A “fluid” is any substance that you can pour--in other words, it will deform or change shape under stress. Most of these fluids are known as Newtonian fluids--they obey the rules of behavior described by Sir Isaac Newton. Others, however, do not obey these rules...and we can get these fluids to do some amazing things!
Included in this lesson are objectives, background information, instructions, and classroom "script".
