Crash Course Kids: Oobleck and Non-Newtonian Fluids - Episode 46.1

Ever heard of Oobleck? How about Non-Newtonian fluids?

Well, today Sabrina is going to show us that things can sometimes behave like a solid, and sometimes like a liquid depending on how much force is applied to them. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, we’ll talk about some weird stuff that’s still… normal.
