An icky, slimy day was had by our scientists on Monday, February 4th.
Our experiments were focused on creating polymers using food grade ingredients.
Sodium alginate (a seaweed derived food thickening agent) and calcium chloride (a good grade salt) were prepared in distilled water solutions.
The alginate solution was then carefully placed into the salt solution. Experiments were conducted including time, physical properties, and finally Taste!!!!!
