Explore the Science of Building Polymers by Cross-linking Long Chains of Molecules
Amazing fluorescent colors won’t stain your hands
This is slime like you’ve never seen before. No glue… no Borax… no messy mixing… just amazing! Just mix-up the Activator solution and squirt your favorite String Slime color into the liquid. The instant the two liquids touch, you get solid String Slime.
Remove the strings from the bowl and you’re ready to play. Snap the string in half to reveal the gooey center. Just dip the ends into the Activator solution to seal it back up.
What does it teach?
Explore the science of building polymers by cross-linking long chains of molecules. The process of making String Slime is faster and easier than the classic slime recipe and it happens the very second the two liquids mix. Truly amazing!
What age is this activity best suited?
This activity is great for all ages. Both String Slime liquid and the Activator powder is safe to use as directed with adult supervision. Use String Slime as an introduction to chemical changes for young children while older children will learn about polymer science through the process of cross-linking long chains of molecules together.
