My son spent hours on the internet trying to get information for his
science experiment.  He did the slime experiment in class (polyvinyl
alcohol + sodium borate) and was able to find information about this
chemical reaction.  He is stumped on this one though:  Ferric Nitrate 
+ gelatin solution.  It also makes a slime (gel).  What is the 
chemical reaction?  If you could help us out, or send us to a 
particular website,I would be greatful!  Thanks!
