Cold Milk: Measuring Energy Transfer in the Creation of Ice Cream

by: Sarah Reeves Young

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! This experiment demonstrates endothermic reactions in a way that creates a learning experience that connects science with the popular dessert ice cream. Students are introduced to the concept of endothermic reactions, and how a change in thermal energy can create a phase change. The experiment is a hands-on activity that incorporates knowledge from chemistry and physics, leaving students with a concrete example of endothermic reactions in the classroom.
