The Integrated Science class, taught by Mr. Bass, a new science teacher at SJHS, did an ice cream lab on October 9 at SJHS. It was a reward for positive behavior, according to Mr. Bass.
The best part was making it, according to Autumn Olsen, an eighth grade student in the class. “It is a chance to have students witness first hand the subject they are learning and do something memorable,” said Mr. Bass.
The class made vanilla and chocolate ice cream by freezing the melted ice cream with liquid nitrogen. Students were able to experience phase change, expansion, contraction, loud explosions, and other cool physical changes.
“I’m happy the ATF or SWAT did not feel the need to show up. Seriously, the kids were great, and we all had fun,” said Mr. Bass.
