Favorite school science project: Making ice cream in a Ziploc bag without using an ice cream maker or even a freezer! I don’t remember exactly how it worked, but something about ice and salt combining to make below zero temperatures and freezing the ice cream ingredients... The ice cream didn’t turn out all that well, but anyone who knows me at all knows that ice cream is one of my favorite things in life so this was by far my most memorable experiment.
