Have no idea for your science fair? Want to make something simple? What about artificial quicksand?


Question: At which temperature does artificial quicksand have the strongest pull?Edit


We think that the artificial quicksand will have a stronger pull in a cooler temperature.


-Water 1/2 cup 120 ml  (just add 1 tablespoon if needed.)

-Cornstarch 1 1/2 cup 360ml

-1 measuring jug



-Food Colouring (optional)


1.) Add 1/2 cup of water and all 1 1/2 cup cornstarch in to a bowl.

2.)Stir with a spoon or your hands.

3.) Put your hand in it , if it pulls your hands congratulations you made quicksand!
