For the third consecutive year, Young Women In Bio–Seattle hosted a table at Cascadia Elementary Science & Engineering Night on April 25th, 2019. Cascadia Elementary Science & Engineering Night gives students the opportunity to present their science projects and allows students and their families to participate in hands-on science activities.
YWIB-Seattle used oobleck (a mixture of cornstarch and water) to demonstrate Non-Newtonian fluids. By making their own mixtures, students experienced first-hand that oobleck mimics a liquid when a weak force is applied, and it mimics a solid when a strong force is applied. Overall, this outreach event was a blast for all involved!
