Concoction of Water and Cornstarch to create a non-Newtonian fluid.

Also known as:
Cornstarch Suspension

How to make Mistypus:

Pour approximately 1/4 of the box (about 4 oz.) of cornstarch into the mixing bowl and slowly add about a half a cup of water. Mix the cornstarch and water with your hands.

Continue adding cornstarch and water in small amounts until you get a mixture that has the consistency of honey. It may take a little work to get the consistency just right, but you will eventually end up mixing one box of cornstarch with roughly 1 to 2 cups of water.
Our science experiment in science today was making Mistypus, a mixture of cornstarch and water. It was awesome!

Mistypus wrestling is so much cooler than Jello wrestling!
