A Closer Look at Polymers - Making Slime Lab
|Investigate the properties of Slime, a trademarked toy material
first marketed commercially in the 1970s. Your students will
prepare this entertaining - yet educational - material using
various natural and synthetic polymers and color it with various
dyes. In addition, students will create Flexi-Putty, form it into
a bouncing ball and compare its properties to slime. In the
process, they'll gain a better understanding of the chemistry
behind these long-chain polymers and their application in a
variety of products we use in everyday life.
|Includes enough materials for a class size of 40 students.
