Not the same day of course, but eventually. Here’s something you can feel good about tossing. Our latest cornstarch packing peanut creations. Though my partner had experimented with them while she was a preschool teacher, my first introduction the art project potential of the cornstarch packaging peanut was at The Children’s Discovery Museum in San Jose. We made little dinosaurs and we just had a blast. These cornstarch packing peanuts are just amazing. They’re 100% biodegradable and edible. To build your sculptures all you need is a plate or bowl with a damp sponge or damp paper towel in it, some sheets of cardboard for the base (cereal boxes will work great) and some packing peanuts. You lightly dab the end of the packing peanut on the sponge or damp paper towel and then stick it to the cardboard or another peanut. This project has a big bang for little buck and little effort.

School Radio - Podcasts Science for Kids Water is an amazing substance! It can form into a beautiful snowflake in its solid state or evaporate into the air as a gas. Experiment with solids, liquids and gases to learn more about these states of matter. How do objects move? What lies beneath the surface of our Earth? The human body is made of various chemicals to help us smell, see, move, and most importantly, survive. Have some fun playing with science. Tag along with our friend Meg A.
BBC Learning English | Pronunciation Tips Household Science for Kids: Slime & Polymers What's going on? When you mix Elmer's glue with a bit of water, you make a substance that is known as a polymer (polyvinyl acetate) and that the borax solution (sodium tetraborate) is a 'cross-linking' substance that binds the polymer chains together to make the glue solution thicker. So, as the polymer chains get more 'bound-together', it gets harder for them to move around, and your slime starts to be more like Silly-putty™. Experiment with adding more borax solution to see if this indeed makes the slime thicker or thinner. Knowing just how much Borax solution to add is the trick to this experiment. The substance known as 'Gak™' is really a specialized form of a polymer known as Poly-vinyl Alcohol, but is not too far off what we made with Elmer's glue.
