Today was very successful! we wrapped up the semester with ooblec, teaching students about Newtonian fluids through a fun activity, combining just corn starch water and food coloring!
Through slam i had the opportunity to give back to the community while simultaneously learning and teaching. I plan to be a professor in the future so having the opportunity to find strategies for effectively handling a room of 20 middle schoolers was good experience. I also was able to learn about the field I'm studying through extensive research of the science behind the seemingly simple experiments we conduct with the students each week.
