National Ice Cream Day Event

Sunday, July 16th
2:00pm to 4:30pm

Did you know that everyone’s favorite Summer time treat, Ice Cream, has its own National day?  This year, Sunday, July 16th is National Ice Cream Day.  President Ronald Reagan began this tradition with a proclamation in 1984. 

The Science Spectrum will be celebrating the tradition by putting a “fun science spin” on the event Sunday, July 16th from 2:00 to 4:30pm in its lobby with free Super Cold Show Demonstrations, where the science of cold, states of matters, and the properties of liquid nitrogen, one the coldest know substances, will be discussed. Demonstrations will be at 2:15 and 4:00pm. See the science behind how matter changes in a super cold environment within seconds!

Then, sample the Science Spectrum’s recipe for Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream using fresh ingredients. Free Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Samples are available while supplies last! Guests can also purchase Dippin’ Dots ice cream at the concessions stand.
