Materials The materials used were wood, mucilage glue, white glue, glue stick and paper. IV. Methods…

    way to recycle used Styrofoam, and this is to make glue out of it. This glue can help reduce the number of Styrofoam that will be thrown away. Styrofoam is made of polystyrene beads which unravel into fine strands whenever it is melted/dissolved. Due to the unraveling of polystyrene, the Styrofoam will become a thick like gel. When it is a gel, it will be moldable and when it dries it will be very sticky. It is a very effective adhesive to glue things together. But it is not very safe since it…

    Fruit Glue While the idea of gluing fruit together may sound novel, it was pointed out that the process is nothing more than an extrapolation of a fruit terrine. Still, we find that the ability to layer fruits and vegetables together is really exciting. Especially when we look beyond using just gelatin, which is the traditional bonding agent in fruit terrines and only effective at cold temperatures. Instead, we were inspired by the synergy of hydrocolloids. The first combination of ingredients…
