ScienceandFood brought some delightful ice cream science to the Advancing Women in Science and Engineering (AWiSE) STEM Day! AWiSE teamed up with EmpowHer institute to bring 7th grade girls from two schools in Gardena and Inglewood to experience a day full of STEM activities at UCLA.
Do you know why the secret ingredient to homemade ice cream is rock salt? When salt is added to ice, it helps ice stay at a colder temperature when it is taken out of the freezer. This is also called freezing point depression. The colder ice enables you to make ice cream in bags at home.
