Free liquid nitrogen ice cream at Seattle U Wednesday

You gotta get to Seattle U early if you want free ice cream today (July 13) at 3:15 p.m.

Students will make the ice cream using liquid nitrogen as part of their summer research, and you can score some if you show up early enough. Seattle U’s Stacy Howard says it goes fast.

From Seattle U:

WHAT: Seattle University students will gear up in goggles and lab coats to make liquid nitrogen ice cream as part of their summer research project this afternoon. The tasty treat takes just five minutes to make because of the rapid boiling of the nitrogen. This is the third year chemistry students have made the special ice cream, where nitrogen supplies the bubbles that double the batter size, which is made with custard, cream and vanilla or chocolate flavor. Rumor has it, it’s better than most ice cream out there! 

WHEN: Wednesday, July 13, 2011

             3:15 p.m.


WHERE: Bannan Arboretum
