Favorite Science Experiment: My favorite experiment was from elementary school where we created "Oobleck", a non-Newtonian fluid made with cornstarch and water. I really loved playing around with it when I was younger, and I loved that I could never quite wrap my head around it. It was the perfect introduction to how astounding and fun science can be.
