FAQ: Liquids: What is a non-Newtonian fluid?

To make the water to come out faster, you have to pull the trigger harder. Fluids resist flow. This phenomenon is known as viscosity. Newton devised a simple model for fluid flow that could be used to relate how hard you have to pull the trigger to how fast the liquid will squirt out of the pistol. Picture a flowing liquid as a series of layers of liquid sliding past each other. But ketchup, blood, yogurt, gravy, pie fillings, mud, and cornstarch paste DON'T follow the model. For some fluids (like mud, or snow) you can push and get no flow at all- until you push hard enough, and the substance begins to flow like a normal liquid.

Students with visual impairments do not benefit from this incidental learning and require more direct instruction and hands-on experiences to develop a complete picture of objects and concepts. For example, sighted children see hundreds of images of pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns throughout the year. However, a blind child may only touch a pumpkin or jack-o-lantern once a year. Consequently, the link between pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns is not reinforced after an annual pumpkin carving and can be quickly forgotten. With support from the Grousbeck Foundation, the WGBH National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) and Perkins School for the Blind collaborated on a project to explore the use of Teachers Domain lesson plans and described videos with students with visual impairments.

Bruce Banner, who goes Hulk when angered, developed the Gamma Bomb for the US government. Susan Storm, also known as the Invisible Woman, holds four doctorates in biochemistry and still finds time to save the world. Even the X-Men's Beast is a much-lauded biochemist. Close study of comic book universes and the science concepts upon which they are founded can be enlightening for students and teachers alike.
