Make Learning Fun, Interactive, and Delicious

One of the most critical reasons on why Ice Cream Lab came into existence is the fact that making ice cream from liquid nitrogen is not only fun but ‘HUGELY’ educational. Pairing education with excitement, fun, and entertainment is what learning should always be about! What better way to learn than through interactive, hands-on experiences that really SHOW the properties of solids, liquids and gases. Liquid nitrogen is a perfect example of all 3 of these states of matter which ties in to science units that begin in kindergarten all the way through to grade 8! Certainly the results of this lesson ending with a taste of how we can make ice cream is just the ‘icing on the cake.’

As one of the owners of Ice Cream Lab, but also a registered Speech-Language Pathologist, our school-based science demonstrations were developed to focus on relevant vocabulary and age-appropriate language and concepts that coincide with every grade level.

In the primary grades the focus is primarily on the 3 states of matter: solids, liquids and gases, whereas the middle school years dive deeper into mixtures and solutions as well as the particle theory which tie into school board science curriculum.

School Program Inquiry

Our science show typically runs 1 hour in length and includes a variety of science experiments where students are asked to develop hypotheses, use deductive reasoning and estimate what they feel may happen throughout the demonstration. All experiments show the magical wonder and properties of liquid nitrogen (LN2) and the effects it has on other substances. Finished off with a grand finale of how liquid nitrogen is used to make a delicious treat, which will be sampled by the entire class at the end of the show.

Contact us today to develop a science program that not only captivates your students, but is a true demonstration of how science can be exciting, fun and results in something super YUMMY!

In Store

Are you looking for an educational field trip for your class? You’ve come to the right place. We offer a hands on interactive presentation that is both fun and educational.

Each student will increase their knowledge of science, as we give an hour long science class all about the properties of Nitrogen. They will also get to create and prepare* their own ice cream using the liquid nitrogen.

* In order to prepare their ice cream (mix using liquid nitrogen) students will need to be of an appropriate age and must have a signed waiver from their parents or legal guardian, successfully answering all questions on a proper handling and safety information quiz. Proper protective equipment will be provided by Ice Cream Lab.

Due to the size of our store, group sizes will be limited to one class of 20-35 students. Pricing is dependent on the experiments we would perform, as well as the size of the class. Prices are per person and can be customized to your needs.

Education

In Class

We are fully mobile and we can bring our science to your classroom. We can bring all the equipment required to offer you an amazing in class/school science program. We can offer a hands on interactive presentation that is both fun and educational that can be customized to any group size whether it be one class or a whole gym or auditorium of students.

Each student will increase their knowledge of science as we give an hour long science class about all the properties of Nitrogen.

Depending on the size of the group students may also be able to create and prepare* their own ice cream using the liquid nitrogen.

* In order to prepare their ice cream (mix using liquid nitrogen) students will need to be of appropriate age and must have a signed waiver from their parents or legal guardian and successfully answer all questions on a proper handling and safety information quiz. Proper personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided by Ice Cream Lab.
