Professor Philip Brainard creates Flubber and tries to learn more about it. He performs quick tests on the physical properties of Flubber and finds that it is a highly viscous elastomer that can also phase shift between a liquid and a solid. Using observation skills, he also learns that Flubber is moldable, foldable, ductile, and elastic, among other properties.
This video simply discusses what properties of matter are and explains a few properties, such as length, width, height, and weight, commonly seen in science. The video is simple, but depth and complexity can then be added to your lesson based on grade level.
Willy Wonka demonstrates his latest invention: television chocolate, which makes it possible to send a real bar of chocolate through the television. Willy Wonka explains his inspiration: if television can break up a photograph into millions of tiny pieces, why can't he do the same with chocolate? His guests state that the invention is impossible, and one of the kids briefly explains the scientific reasoning behind it (which isn't entirely accurate). Mr. Wonka sends a large chocolate bar into a TV set, and Charlie reaches in and grabs it, showing that the invention does in fact work.
