I have to admit that the whole Slime Making phenomenon was puzzling but at the same time fascinating, I kind of loved watching these videos but I was never tempted to make my own. One of the ingredients is BORAX, so emm no. I let the kids handle it and do all the work.

So now I got a new fad for these science kids, let’s make Aerogel. Watching the below video blew my mind, especially the part at the end when she is crumbling up Aerogel pieces and rubbing them into her hand to make them water repellent. The only thing which prevents Making Aerogel the next big thing, is the rather complicated process of producing it.
