Now, to your excellent question. Science project? I used to work at London's Science Museum, as a member of a science gang called Punk Science. We travelled all over the UK and Europe doing crazy fun dangerous science performances. We did a bit of TV, radio… a few kids books, and even met the Queen! It was awesome.
One time, to demonstrate non Newtonian fluids, I rented a cement mixer. We filled it with cornflour and water and mixed up this goo that acts very strange. We filled a small swimming pool with this messy stuff, and ran over it barefoot!!!
If you stop, you sink. If you continue to apply pressure, it stays solid. You can make it using cornflour or custard powder and a little water. Mix it in a small bowl. Then give it a punch. Solid!?! Then try to pick it up. Gooey!!!?! It's crazy. But it's also a great demonstration of material sciences.
Good luck with your schooling, and your excellent question asking. And keep up the good work at Sandown, Kyle.
