Viscoelastic Slime Tube

$10.00 NZD

Just add water to this Viscoelastic Slime Tube and mix to make your own coloured slime!


Add 220ml of water to the slime powder, and the polymers in the powder will start to link together. When enough of the molecules get hooked together, the solution turns into slime! This is a simple and awesome experiment that makes for a fun sensory experience tamariki of all ages will love. 


Stretch it, snap it, squish it, knead it - it's loads of fun! Slime is a non-Newtonian matter - neither a solid, liquid or gas. Its viscosity decreases under stress so when you apply pressure, it becomes more solid.


  • Learn about non-Newtonian matter with this awesome test tube kit
  • Tube measures approximately 14cm x 3.1cm 
  • Assorted colours available. Yours will be chosen at random.
  • Recommended for ages 5+ years


This Viscoelastic Slime Tube is also available for purchase in store at Space Place.
