Let’s have a delicious lesson in applied science. In this hands-on 3-workshop series, kids and adults will make ice cream 3 ways: by hand, by machine and by liquid nitrogen. We’ll learn the science behind the recipes and finish off with ice cream tastings made by us. Though we recommend the series for kids to benefit from seeing the varying science behind each method, drop-ins are also welcome. For kids ages 2.5+ and their ice-cream-loving adults. Everyone will get a chance to help.
