TechFest Blog - Kitchen Science

The incredible rise in popularity of slime with small humans is not difficult to understand. There’s something incredibly pleasing about squidging it and feeling it ooze between your fingers, and even more satisfying you can make it at home yourself with easy to obtain ingredients. Slime is one of the many “Kitchen Science” experiments that can pique the curiosity of children and potentially lead to a real interest in science.
