Abstract: Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid made of cornstarch and water, easily made and biodegradable. The aim of this research article is to evaluate the performance of Oobleck as a packaging material and compare it with Polyethylene, the most common packaging material in use today. To compile this article, a review of literature in the field of packaging material was done, leading to the design and realization of a simple experiment to make a comparison. The result indicates that Oobleck may possess better packaging shielding than the conventional methods of packaging.
