ENGINEERING FOR KIDS PRESENTS MAKE YOUR OWN SLIME!
Slime is a gooey polymer consisting mostly of water – plus polyvinyl alcohol (school glue), which easily dissolves in water, causing its units to link and form “chains.” This gives the solution a thick, syrupy appearance.
When borax (sodium tetraborate) is added to the polyvinyl alcohol solution, the chains of polyvinyl alcohol cross-link to form a viscous, elastic gel. Since the cross-linking is weak, the chains continually form and break under the weight of the gel or with handling. The mixture of polyvinyl alcohol, borax and water results in a rubbery, slimy colloid, which feels cool because it absorbs the heat from your hand. Add some food coloring and you have a fun, art-filled chemical creation!
