Science Project: Making Quicksand

Have you ever seen a movie where the hero is dashing through the jungle when they step in a bog of quicksand which sucks them down to their untimely death, or what seems their untimely death until they're saved at the last minute? Well, quicksand doesn't actually work like that. Sorry to bust your movie going experience, but quicksand is rarely deeper than a few feet and if you hold yourself still you will float to its surface and be free. Try this experiment to see exactly how quicksand works! Back to Article

I've done this in science before. My science teacher called it Oobleck.We mixed cornstarch, water, and food coloring. It felt so weird! It felt like gooey powder and when it dries up on your hands, they feel so stiff! I peeled the stuff off and it was like paint flaking off of a wall.
