Slimy Lab
Field Trips Outreach Virtual with Hands-on Kits

Slimy Lab

Students engage in an introductory chemistry experience and make silly putty.

Featured:

Students get their hands deep into science when they combine two
liquid substances and create their own silly putty. Participants are
encouraged to get a little messy and to think about the different ways
they can work to change the substances.  There are always lots of smiles
and giggles during this experience.

Connections:

Learners make estimates, measure and pour ingredients and observe
and consider the structure and properties of matter.  They plan and
carry out the steps necessary to experience a chemical reaction in their
own hands.  (NGSS PS1A  and PS1B)

Notes :

In this program students are encouraged to conduct the experiments for themselves with limited assistance from chaperones.

This program is frequently combined our tour program during a SEE field trip visit.
