Ice Cream Wars

Ice Cream Wars is the Da Vinci Science Center’s annual flagship visitor event. It is held on the second Saturday of January.

Teams from regional and global companies devise fresh batches of playful ice cream flavors and created their treats instantly for visitors using liquid nitrogen from Air Products at negative 320 degrees Fahrenheit as a flash-freezing agent. Visitors taste the flavors and choose their favorite flavors. Teams decorate their stations, dress colorfully, and cheer enthusiastically throughout the competition. While liquid nitrogen stands at negative 320 degrees Fahrenheit, it evaporates quickly when mixed with the ice cream ingredients. The smooth, creamy ice cream is safe to eat in approximately five minutes.
