Science Fair

We found a science fair on Saturday, and it was free. I decided I would take the girls, and it was awesome. We made slime, brush bots, chap stick. We taste tested popcorn for saturated fats, and tried dry ice cheese puffs. We saw lots of crazy bugs, and even pet a giant beetle. The favorites were the brush bots and the slime.

This was the kit they used for the bristle bot, but I am going to try to see if I can find the stuff locally and do a tutorial on it.
Aren't their bots the cutest!

And the slime! The girls love the slime!

Ingredients: ½ cup glue and two Cups Borax
1. Mix ½ -cup water with ½ cup glue. In a separate container, mix ½ cup water with 2c. Borax (Borax can be purchased in the laundry detergent aisle).
2. Now, stir the Borax mixture while slowly adding the glue mixture.
3. It should immediately come together to make slime. If it isn't quite right try adding more of the Borax and water.
