The Chemistry of Food Event (aka Ice Cream Social)
Saturday, September 8, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM (PDT)
Los Angeles, CA
What better way to cap off the summer than with an Ice Cream Social?!!!
But not just any old Ice Cream Social....
Experience the chemistry of food through such scientifically sound desserts as liquid nitrogen ice cream, carbonated fruit (using dry ice), and tablets which make sour food taste sweet.
* Science Teachers and Nitrogen Handlers Levi Simons and Stacie Dahl will teach us about the chemistry behind our fun experiments and you get to eat the delicious results!
* Jean Kaneko of The Exploratory will help us make origami bowls to hold the ice cream. Points for not dropping any on the floor!
* Adam from LA Coffee Club will be attempting Ice Cream Coffee
* Matt Turner, father to 2.5 year old twin girls, will be providing the beats (we specifically requested the song "Science Is Real" by They Might Be Giants :D ).
--> If you would like to try making a specific kind of ice cream or carbonated fruit, please bring the ingredients with you -- strawberries, mangos, lemons, etc. all appreciated. Bring some root beer or orange soda to make a float! <--
The per person charge will be applied toward the cost of the liquid nitrogen, dry ice and other ingredients and supplies for the event.
This event is open to all ages.
