Slime Lab

Get stuck into the strange and squishy world of slime - think goo, jelly balls and seaweed.

Students will pop and stretch these unusual slimey materials, discovering how they can help save the planet as an alternative to plastic. Examples include edible plastic-free water bottles (as seen at the 2019 London Marathon), packaging to replace plastic sachets (e.g fast food ketchup sachets), water holders and soil hydrators - the list is endless. Students will love this messy, but educational workshop!
