SubZero icecream

Amazing Educational Experience

We offer a unique, STEM focused presentation designed to educate students using the unique properties of liquid nitrogen and finish with making fresh and delicious ice cream. We travel to your location and set up our super cool, -321° F science presentation the time and hassle of buses and travel.

We start by teaching STEM based concepts through the use of liquid nitrogen as found on the periodic table of elements. Using safe methods, we demonstrate the colorless, odorless liquid which appears to bubble and boil as vapor mist swirls and dances at room temperature.

Our unique program is concluded by our favorite experiment — creating ice cream for each and every participant made fresh and delicious by the miracle of science. If there are any students with special dietary needs, we can create separate batches of our special non-dairy/sugar-free options that taste absolutely amazing. Everyone loves ice cream and it always brings a smile!


Sub Zero presentations are very safe. All of our experiments are very engaging for both students and staff members. The purpose of the presentation is to demonstrate scientific principles while using liquid nitrogen.

The school presentation cost will vary by your local Sub Zero location. The price of the presentation is based on the number of students and staff, distance, and any additional add-on items requested. Please call your nearest location directly for special pricing.

Sub Zero will adapt the presentation material to the grade level of the students, but we cover the following educational scientific topics:

  • Nitrogen Safety
  • Atmosphere
  • Elements: Nitrogen
  • Condensation/Evaporation
  • The Ideal Gas Law
  • Water Crystal Structure

The science presentation and ice cream should take 45-55 minutes. Presentation length can be adjusted according to class schedules and teacher needs.

We need enough space for an 8’ table and room to walk around it. We can perform the presentation inside or outside based on the number of students. We do not need electricity. Access to water is helpful, but we can bring our own containers if necessary.

Sub Zero will make ice cream for all students and staff at the conclusion of the presentation. We will be making the ice cream onsite and we can cater to most allergies that your staff or students may have. Please disclose the allergies before the presentation with the Sub Zero owner, so we can come prepared.

  • States of Matter and how that relates to the conditions
  • What is in our Atmosphere
  • Condensation and Evaporation
  • How this relates to heat transfer
  • Ideal Gas Law PV=nRT and how you can visualize the equation in action
  • Gas Expansion and Contraction
  • Testing observations or Hypothesis
  • Pressure effect from heat transfer causing liquid to gas expansion
  • Water and Hydrogen bonding
  • How Hydrogen bonding makes water a fluid
  • Water crystal structure and how hydrogen bonding makes the shape of a snow flake.
  • How Water Crystal formation effects the texture of ice cream.
