Who has time to sit around and wait for ice cream to freeze? Visitors will have the chance to taste ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, which quickly brings the temperature down to -321°F (-196°C or 77K) and into waiting cups as fast as it can be mixed!
Kids of all ages will learn about materials from Drexel and University of Pennsylvania faculty and students and our collaborating organizations, including the Academy of Natural Sciences and The Franklin Institute, through hands-on demos and workshops.
Everyone is invited to Philly Materials Day 2017 featuring new hands-on activities related to how materials impact your world. It's free and open to the public!
