Magnetic Slime

I had some free time during the Christmas break, so I started flicking through the GUSTO booklet which I got at the More Able evening. I like science so I went to the science pages, and I saw the task to make magnetic slime. I thought it would be interesting because I didn’t know how slime could be magnetic.

I looked up how to make magnetic slime on the internet and I found some videos. I learnt that you just have to make normal slime and then add something magnetic to it.

I made normal slime using shampoo, corn starch, water and food colouring. The best way to make magnetic slime is by adding iron filings but I didn’t have any, so I added paper clips instead. This makes the slime magnetic as paper clips have iron in them. Then, I held a strong magnet over the slime and the slime rose up.

I looked into how magnets work and found out that magnets have two poles – a north pole and a south pole. Opposite poles (north and south) attract each other. Poles that are the same (south and south/north and north) repel each other.

For my next GUSTO project, I think I might try making and presenting a range of dishes that are high in fibre – a challenge included in the Food and Nutrition section.

To other students, I would say that the projects are really fun to do, and there is a lot of selection depending on your interests.
