Hands-on: Homemade Slime!


You too can be thrilled by making a cup of slime! Just look at that two foot tall stalactite of goop clinging to her hand! This scene of joyful exclamation happened again and again as kids helped us test hands-on projects. We’re testing, selecting and optimizing the right set of activities so that at Maker Faire you’ll have the opportunity to make, for instance, your own goopy mess. 

Add borax to glue and water in the correct proportions and in the right order, then stir. It’s remarkable how such simple chemistry can produce such a playful substance. This is another of the many hands-on activities attendees will be able to participate in because, at Maker Faire, we make things!
