Holiday Lecture 2019

What gives ice cream its creamy texture? How does adding salt to ice help in the making of ice cream? What happens when ice cream melts then re-freezes?

Join us at the 2019 Harvard Holiday Science Lecture as we observe, taste, and explore the science of ice cream. Kids, families, students, teachers and the curious are welcome! You will discover the physics, chemistry and biology of how ice cream is made, and what makes it such a yummy treat. Using live experiments and interactive demonstrations with children from the audience, we will investigate the wonders of ice cream. Come and be a scientist with us!
