Chemistry and Chemical reactions

Happy Thursday! Teaching the chemistry and chemical reaction behind slime making just doesn’t get old. The youths get to learn about monomers and polymers! Chemical bonds formed when you mix the PVA glue and slime activator together. . . . During the chemical reaction, activators (borax, saline solution, or liquid starch) change the position of […]

Polymers (the science of plastics)

STEMing #Slime #3DPrinting Before 3D printing plastics, first let’s learn about polymers! We had a blast creating our fluffy and regular slimes today! Most of them are not new to slime but no one told them about polymerization, monomers, polymers, cross-linking, activators and non-Newtonian fluid. We also explained that polymer engineering as a branch of […]
