Demonstrations

  • Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream* – We use liquid nitrogen to make a tasty treat for your group!

    • Learn about Kitchen Chemistry and phases of matter.

    • Served in batches of 20 servings. Additional batches can be added for an additional fee.

    • Note: Liquid nitrogen ice cream is safe when done in a controlled environment with trained staff.  Out of an abundance of caution, we do not recommend this demonstration for guests with asthma. Fruit slushies can be provided for guests with dietary requirements if we are notified in advance.​ 

  • Dry Ice Bubbles– We harness the special properties of dry ice to learn about gas formation!

    • Learn about Gas and pressure and the phases of matter.

    • Notes: Dry ice is perfectly safe when used in a controlled environment.  Participants may opt to wear safety goggles and protective gloves, which can be provided. Some versions of this activity can also get noisy, so prepare accordingly!

  • Slime Lab – Everyone makes their own personalized putty, which can be taken home.

    • Learn about States of matter and what makes polymers so special (and fun!).

    • Notes: Food dye is used. Plan clothing choices appropriately.

  • 3-2-1 POP - This activity is a simple but exciting demonstration of Newton's Laws of Motion.
