Walking on custard
In the final day of Science Week, the students and staff got to do the famous ‘walking on custard’ experiment.
In this experiment they took it in turns to walk and run on a pool full of custard making sure not to stop otherwise they would sink to the bottom.
This is possible because custard is a non-newtonian fluid and behaves as a liquid until pressure is applied to it and it becomes solid, allowing the students to run across it if they were fast enough.
Well done to everyone involved in Science Week, we hope to make it a great event again next year.
