Today we spent the whole lesson making our polymer prototype. Our goal was to make a product prototype by the end of the class. Ben and I made several polymers, including a bouncy one, a soft one and a slimy one. We started off with trying to make a blue tag, but after trying all combinations of borax, … Continue reading
Today my partner Ben Lin and I made our advertisement video.

March 16 Day 3 – Boogers, Super Slime, Review What did you/we do? We made super slime and boogers. These two polymers are both soft and sticky. We did poke tests on them and recorded the results on the handout. We also reviewed for the test. What did you learn? That pva glue is an … Continue reading
Day 2 Polymers concept map/Gloop What did you/we do? We shared our research information with our groups. Than we put this information on a mind map using Inspiration. We then made a polymer using PVA glue, borax, and water. What did you learn? Polymers are made up of many many molecules all strung together … Continue reading
Day 1 – Oobleck What did you/we do? Mr. Winkelman read us the book Bartholomew and the Oobleck by Dr. Seuss. And after that we made our own oobleck.
