Students at LHS Learn About Chemical Reactions by Making Ice Cream

Chemistry students incorporated the content they have been learning with a fun, delicious treat. They used the scientific method and experimental design for a practical way of making ice cream. Students mixed milk, heavy cream, vanilla, and sugar in a bag full of ice to create ice cream - all with the secret ingredient of salt. Students observed how adding salt to ice drops the temperature to the freezing point.
