We made that glue and borate goopy stuff (I think we added too much borate 
because it wasn't as oozy as I remember, but We just finished testing and the 
kids brains are mush, so I'm having a hard time explaining a polymer to them.  
I know it has something to do with the way the molecules are attached or the 
type of bond or something.  I was a Women's Studies major though....  Help! :)
