In this opportunity, the children in J4A have been working with polymers and have been studying its main characteristics.
Our goal is for them to apply the new concepts in real life, so what better way to do so than making their own slime?
A polymer is a large chain of molecules made up of smaller units that repeat themselves. The white glue in our slime is a polymer, a large chain of molecules that allows it to be poured. When we add the liquid starch it changes the structure of the chain making the polymer thicker which then makes our awesome slime.
We only used starch, glue, glitter, a bowl and a spoon. Here are the results:
