Field Trip Friday: Slime in space
Ever wonder what happens to slime in space?
Well, wonder no more! Nickelodeon teamed up with astronauts on the International Space Station to demonstrate how slime reacts to microgravity. Then kids back here on Earth tried to reproduce those same demonstrations.
In the 15-minute virtual field trip, you’ll see just how far slime will travel when shot out of a giant syringe, and what happens when you pop a slime balloon in an environment where liquids are weightless. Will it float? Will it plop to the ground and make a huge mess? Find out in the video below:
Here you can find more resources for this field trip - including a teacher’s guide.
