Beyond The Limit (BTL) club members turned into food scientists. They made fizzy lemonade  and ice cream.

Lemons are highly acidic. Baking soda is an alkaline substance. When the two ingredients combine, they create a chemical reaction that gives off carbon dioxide gas (which is completely harmless!). 

What’s the chemistry behind ice cream because it’s pretty sweet! The magic is in the salt and ice mixture in the bag! Instead of placing the ingredients for ice cream in the freezer, students mixed together salt and ice to make a solution. Adding salt to the ice lowers the temperature at which water freezes. Shaking the bag allows the warm cream mixture to move around to allow for better freezing.
