Chill Out! School Program

Chill Out!

Program Description:

Students learn the journey from cow to cone as they tour the Museum’s Dairy Barn and our demonstration milk house. They race against time as they decide which method is most efficient: an electric ice-cream maker or an old-fashioned manual one. If they break a sweat, there is plenty of ice cream to help them cool off at the end of this program!
