The simple process of vibrating a dish of liquid can make for some pretty interesting results - mixing in a bit of cornstarch can be downright freaky.

Find some of the great press, Theater Oobleck is getting for it's play, Strauss at Minight. More details at theateroobleck****
David Issacson uses method acting and spirit of his character, Saul Bellow to get into acting shape.
The new harrowing short is a video preview of the comedic and alarming new Theater Oobleck play, Strauss at Midnight by Jeff Dorchen
In Strauss at Midnight, Oscar and Felix’s poker table becomes the battleground for human civilization.
The play co-produced with the DCA theater can be seen at the Storefront Theater at 66 E. Randolph Street Chicago, IL 60602 starting June 12
*******www.ilovedrseuss**** This is my first video ever doing Dr Seuss Book reviews. Let me know in the comments section what you think! I'll be doing a new book at least once per week. Check back often.
A non-Newtonian fluid that changes from a liquid state to a solid state when stress is applied (ie shaking of the metal sheet with sound waves)

Obleck is a mixture that defies newtons third law and kids will love it!
It's mind-blowing to think this stuff is in our food! Here's how to make a glowing "magical mud" from ordinary potatoes.

WARNING: This substance can make quite a mess, so make it in an area that will be easy to clean up. It's non-toxic, and perfectly ok to eat in small quantities, however, use of video content is at own risk.
When I realized that potatoes could be chopped up and soaked to leach out the starch, of course the first thing I thought of was making oobleck. My mind was blown when I experimented with this process, and realized the starch would collect at the bottom of the dish, and would stay in place when the water and impurities were poured out.
After only a couple of rinses, it's amazing to see how pure the starch powder can be. It looks exactly like cornstarch that could be purchased at the store.
I was familiar with the idea of making tonic water glow under UV light, so wondered how it would would mix with the starch powder. The result was very gratifying!
Project inspired by: A pots and pans sales presentation. They peeled some potatoes to make us dinner, and I noticed the white residue at the bottom of the dish and asked if I could take it home.

*THANK YOU FOR SHARING!* Because we love you for that, watch Tara shoot Anthony: *******testtube****/hardscienceextras/non-newtonian-fluid-bsides?utm_source=YTdesc&utm_medium=HS&utm_campaign=HSshare
Think it's impossible to walk on liquid? Think again. Join Anthony and Tara as they make a pool of non-Newtonian fluid, out of oobleck, and walk, run, jump and bike across it. Thanks, science, for the awesome cornstarch pool party!
• Use one part water, two parts cornstarch
• Walk quickly, the faster you go the more solid it feels
• Add food coloring to observe how it moves
A Liquid and a Solid
"In non-Newtonian fluids, the particles are packed very close to each other (they are touching), but they are still able to slip by each other. When you move the mixture slowly, the suspended particles have time to move and slip by each other -- this is how a normal liquid acts. However, when you suddenly apply pressure to the mixture, the particles do not have enough time to move out of the way as they are quite large. This causes them to stay right where they are which causes the mixture to act and feel like a solid."
Putting the Newton in Non-Newtonian
"The term "Newtonian" was named after Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), a scientist who came up with the three laws of motion and was described as "the most important contributor to the development of modern science"

Here is a super easy recipe to make slime using only glue and regular liquid laundry detergent! Slime, also called goo, silly putty, oobleck, or flubber, is a gooey substance that is fun to squeeze and play with it. It only requires two ingredients that you probably already have at your house. You do not need borax or cornstarch for this.
You will need:
- Elmer's glue (or any generic white school glue)
- Liquid laundry detergent (any brand, but Tide works the best)
- spoon or rubber spatula
Step 1. Pour about 1/4 cup of glue into a bowl
You can use a measuring cup to measure it if you like, or you can just estimate it.
Step 2. Add approximately 1 Tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent.
Step 3. Stir well
You may need to add more liquid laundry detergent if it seems to be too sticky. After a few minutes it will take on the nice oooey gooey texture of slime! Take your time and let it work!
It will keep well for a few days if you keep it covered or put it in a zip baggie. Do not get it on carpet since it's hard to remove. Some people like to add food coloring to it for fun also.
I would love to hear your comments about how your slime works if you try this method. Thanks!
Please see complete instructions for "How to make Slime without Borax" at my website:

This amazing sheer thickening fluid is the secret of stab-proof clothing.
As many viewers have pointed out in the comment section, this is a non-newtonian fluid. It works very much like Oobleck, cornstarch in water. See *******en.wikipedia****/wiki/Non-Newtonian_fluid for a long list of mixtures that have similar properties at various strength. In this military grade non-Newtonian fluid, cornstarch is replaced with silica, water is replaced with polyethylene glycol. Watch at time mark 4:43 closely and notice that the free hanging bottle did not drop. It means that the liquid reacts to force as low as Earth's gravity. He had to hold the bottle and free the rod with less force than gravity.
The video does not tell how to keep this solution in liquid form over time. It will probably lose its shielding property when the liquid dry out.
