Powdered glue goes on dry and sticks when squished

This was an article that appeared recently in New Scientist.

Have you ever gone for the superglue to find that it has hardened. When you're in technology class and you reach for the glue gun and burn yourself. And then there's the problem of trying to get that glue , super or gun, into the really awkward position without getting glue everywhere. Well these researchers in Japan may have just found the solution to all of those problems.

Have a read of the article and look at the video here!

Here we have material scientists who have identified a shortcoming and come up with a solution. This is what I love about Science!

This article was sent to us by a parent of one our students (both who shall remain nameless and mysterious). Thanks and more please!
