Sciencedipity’s Slime Science Workshops

Following the hugely popular drop-in slime events we hosted just before Christmas, we decided to offer the next step in slime science. These workshops are 1 hour long and booking is essential, so you know you will get 60 glorious minutes of slime science.

In these workshops you’ll find out what slime actually is and what it is made from, you’ll learn the chemistry behind this luscious stuff (which is important to know so that you can troubleshoot with slime-making at home) and how to make successful slime every time.

Slime Science

The best slime ever!

Do you prefer bouncy slime, or stretchy slime? Here’re the science investigations we’ll be doing – what happens when you alter the quantities of the slime ingredients? Do alternative ingredients work (you’ve read about using contact lens solution or starch solution – right?). Once we’ve made a good slime base, what other ingredients could we use to make an unusual slime – think mousse, baking soda, liquid soap, googly eyes??

During the 1 hour slime workshop, any slime you make you can take home (and there’ll be lots!).

If you can’t make any of the sessions we’ve written a blog here to help you make slime at home.
