Mad Scientists Club: Science Does Dough

  • Program Goals
    • Learn how to measure and estimate
    • Experiment with chemical reactions
    • Learn how to follow a recipe
    • Attendance: 35
Project: Soap Foam Dough
I got this from And Next Comes L. I had a little trouble finding enough foaming hand soap and ended up using some antibacterial stuff as well.
  • Large plastic tubs, aprons, baby wipes, sink, paper towels, plastic tablecloths
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Foaming hand soap
  • Corn starch
  • Watercolors
Project: No Bake Playdough
I just grabbed this recipe off the internet here
  • Large plastic tubs, aprons, baby wipes, sink, paper towels, plastic tablecloths
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Flour, oil, salt
  • Food coloring
  • 2-26-17
    • Attendance: 36
    • Notes: I ran out of stuff and grabbed the pectin from the last program, forgetting that it sticketh closer than a....well, a sticky substance. Note to self NO PECTIN EVER AGAIN. Also, you need foam for the soap foam dough, so next time get dispensers! We could happily have mixed things for twice as long though and everyone had fun.
