My Students

My students are amazing. Each and every one of them are scholars. They are socially conscious and academically inclined. They are readers, artists, scientists and engineers. My students attend the library not only for academic purposes, but also to participate in the many community outreach programs we offer. As a librarian, I am determined to create a welcoming environment for all students so they have to opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from one another, and grow as a community. We hope to increase our MakerSpace with your help!

My Project

My students will have a hands on opportunity to learn about the properties of magnetic forces by using liquid school glue, sodium borate and iron fillings. The glue and sodium borate would be mixed to create a blackish slime. Adding the iron fillings creates a magnetic effect which allows the slime to be manipulated.

Students will be have an opportunity to make magnetic slime during our first annual comic con!

A booth at our comic con will be set up to so students will be able to hold magnets over the slime and see first hand the effect of the magnetic forces through the slime changing shape!

Students will also learn about why slime is a non-newtonian fluid.
