You hear a noise outside. It is in the middle of the night, You ignore it, but then the noise gets louder! The curiosity takes over you. As you take a peep behind your curtains, you realise you are staring at a giant, metal spaceship. Neon lights flickering on and off. Aliens? When you rub your eyes in disbelief, you realise you are not dreaming. This is happening and the main alien himself Mr Zayg wants you! You climb onboard and even though you are nervous, you are about to have the best journey ever!

Make some Ooblek. Oobleck isn’t a liquid or a solid, it’s a non-Newtonian fluid. At times, it may seem like a solid or a liquid but it acts differently than a normal solid or liquid. Making oobleck is a great science experiment to show how changes in pressure can change the properties of some materials.
