messy

Today, with the generous donation of cornstarch from Albemarle Baking Company, BACON made a tub full of non-newtonian fluid! With only cornstarch, water, and a whole lot of mixing, BACON produced oobleck, a liquid that you can walk on, as long as you apply enough pressure to make it thicken. We had people run across it in a demonstration of the liquid’s properties.
