Science is  a verb!  It’s a way of thinking and a method for finding answers. The Grade 8 class at Arthur Pechey read about the properties of a fluid, and then tested a strange substance called “oobleck” to determine if it is indeed a fluid using the criteria they had collected.  The odd thing about Oobleck is that when it is struck with any amount of force, it acts as a hard solid.  When it is gently handled, it acts like a liquid.

So what is it?  Liquid?  Solid?  Both?  Check your criteria – use the scientific method! Yes, science is a verb!
