Fact: kids love gooey things and this Newtonian Putty will not disappoint! This “Non Newtonian Liquid” has a strange molecular structure that means it has different viscosity (gooeyness) at different pressures. So if you pull it apart slowly, it crumbles, but if you squash it into a ball it will bounce. It’s totally crazy and totally fascinating!
What is a Non Newtonian Fluid?
Non Newtonian Fluids behave differently under different amounts of pressure. So when they are not under pressure, they are gooey fluids, but apply pressure and they become solid. This is why you can mould the Newtonian Fluid into a ball!
Newtonian Putty is a wonderful way for kids to experience goo without a mess since this slimy stuff is non-toxic and does not leave any greasy residue! All you get is hours of fun and potential for learning about fluid dynamics without any boring science teacher lectures!
This toy is recommended for all kids ages 6 and above. It is a cool addition to your child or grandchild’s Christmas stocking or use it to fill their Easter Basket. It’s inexpensive and teachers can use it to demonstrate fluids or just a fun classroom toy or to give out as a reward.
The blue Newtonian putty is available through LatestBuy in Australia. Order today and give the gift of goo to a kid in your family (or keep it for yourself, it can be a cool desk toy also!).
