Non-Newtonian fluids are all around you. In fact, in a typical day, you probably come across more examples of Non-Newtonian fluids than Newtonian ones (take that, Newton!). Go explore your house and come up with a list of all the non-Newtonian fluids you have. Pay special attention to what’s in the bathroom and in the kitchen (especially the fridge). Then try and categorize the behavior as shear-thinning (like ketchup) or shear-thickening (like Oobleck).
