How the world works - Snow Fluff Experiment

Make a video of your group conducting the experiment. Write a caption to explain the science involved in this experiment. Click the check to share your learning. Snow Fluff Materials: 1 cup cornflour 1 cup shaving cream Food Coloring Instructions: Pour the cup of corn starch into a large bowl. Use a spoon to scoop the shaving cream on top of it. Put 5-10 drops of food coloring on top. Stir to mix. When the mixture looks like grated cheese, use your hands to squish the mixture even more. Pretty soon the shaving cream and corn starch will form a ball, about the same texture as dough. If your mixture is really wet and sticky after mixing, it needs a little more corn starch. If it won’t stick together and falls into pieces, add a little more shaving cream. That’s it! Try sculpting snow angels, snowmen, or make a tiny snow fort!
