RBCM@Home (Summer) Wibbly Wobbly Slime

It’s a well known fact—kids LOVE getting messy! Making slime is a great way for kids to learn about the science of polymers while reaping the benefits of sensory play. Polymers are made up of long, bendy molecules that are kind of like spaghetti. There are lots of good examples of polymers, like plastic cups, balloons, and even skin.

During this session we'll create our own sea slime and use that slime to make a tide pool and beach scene, just like the one at the Royal BC Museum. 

This session will be guided by educator Anu Shant. 

Materials needed:

  • 1 Bowl 
  • 1 Spoon 
  • Liquid glue (225 ml)
  • Any kind of liquid detergent (4 spoon fulls)
  • Paint or food coloring 

RBCM @ Home (Summer) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.
