Nickelodeon sent its iconic slime to the International Space Station to evaluate how this non-Newtonian fluid reacted in microgravity. Astronauts performed a variety of demonstrations and captured it all on video! Additionally, Nickelodeon created a teacher’s guide on the demonstrations conducted to further engage young students!
This free 15-minute virtual field trip will take kids 250 miles above earth to see how slime, and water, react in a microgravity environment. It’s truly out of this world!
You’ll see just how far slime will travel when shot out of a giant syringe, and what happens when you pop a slime balloon in an environment where liquids are weightless. Will it float? Will it plop to the ground and make a huge mess? We’ll find out!
