Everyone Scream for Ice Cream
Everyone loves ice cream! Take an in-school field trip to the cafeteria, gym or even outside, and discover the scientific principles that are important in making our favorite summertime dessert.


Freezing Point Depression
To demonstrate the effect of adding salt (a solute) to the freezing point of water (a solvent).

Lactose Intolerance
Milk and dairy products can cause problems for many people who lack the enzyme required to digest lactose, the main carbohydrate found in milk. This demonstration illustrates the use of a commercial enzyme product called Lactaid™ as an aid in milk digestion.
