Making your own ice cream with the Brainy Freeze™ Ice Cream Maker is a tasty lesson in thermodynamics and heat transfer. With a simple mixture of ice and salt in the outer container, the temperature drops below zero degrees and creates a perfect environment for freezing ice cream mixtures in the inner container. The fun, tapered strawberry shape is easy for small and large hands alike to grip while the ice cream is churned. Ages 8 and up.
Learn how salt lowers the temperature of ice. Read about the origin and history of ice cream. Try different recipes for ice cream, smoothies and sorbets, and create your own imaginative concoctions! Conduct experiments to learn about the unique properties of water.
The kit includes a 16-page color experiment manual with science, history, fun ice cream facts, instructions for use and recipes.
