The eighth graders in science class this semester got to see a demonstration from Sub Zero Ice Cream on Friday, September 18th here at SJHS. The demonstration featured liquid nitrogen freezing ice cream by pouring it onto bowls of ice cream mixture, expanding, and contracting at extreme temperatures, according to Mr. Bass, a science teacher at SJHS. At the end students also got to eat the ice cream. 

“The college or high school student made the demonstration more interesting and exciting,” said Sam Daybell, an eighth grade student at SJHS. According to Sam, all of the students learned something and got a better understanding of how science is used in the real world.

Sub Zero does demonstrations as a public service to educate students, according to Mr. Bass.

“The hands on and visual demonstrations helped the students learn quicker and remember what they learned better,” said Mr. Bass.

Teachers at SJHS have also been doing liquid nitrogen and ice cream demonstrations as well, according to Mr. Bass, but they want to make Sub Zero an annual occurrence in our school.

“Sub Zero is wonderful. We are very grateful to them. They help to educate students at schools, and I advocate support to them,” said Mr. Bass.
