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!
