WHAT THIS ACTIVITY IS ABOUT
In this activity, you will investigate the properties of a polymer called “Oobleck” (from the Dr. Seuss story Bartholomew and the Oobleck) . When cornstarch is mixed with water, a remarkable physical change takes place.
A POLYMER is a very long-chain molecule made from a MONOMER...a single molecule. MONOMERS link up to create POLYMERS. POLYMERS are all around us, in products we use everyday, and even in the foods we eat...Ketchup is a POLYMER!
