Combining Ice Cream & Science

Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt teaches children a real world application of science by demonstrating how liquid nitrogen can be harnessed to freeze fresh ingredients into ice cream. Not only does the process keep the children entertained with billows of non-toxic nitrogen “smoke”, but we discuss concepts such as the elemental properties of nitrogen, gas laws, the Leidenfrost Effect and the application of science to food. Plus, the students get to eat the fruits of their academic labors with ice cream samples and a coupon! Who knew learning could be so sweet?

Non-dairy options will be available.

Parents who would like an ice cream must register too!
