African Americam Scientist Series
 Frederick McKinley Jones
Chemistry of Homemade Ice Cream Classroom Kit
 
Frederick McKinley Jones, Though he lacked much formal education, made momentous breakthroughs in refrigeration technology that have profoundly impacted modern society. He was the first African American to become a member of the American Society of Refrigeration Engineers. Without his diligent work we would not be able to enjoy the vast array of refrigerated and frozen foods that we take for granted each and every day.
 
In this experiment students will learn the secret of making ice cream using milk, sugar and vanilla. In addition, temperatures will be measured at various stages of production. It's fun and educational AND the kids get to eat the ice cream they make! Included in this experiment are enough materials for 25 students working individually (or more if they share).
 
Kit includes:
  • Biography sheet of Frederick McKinley Jones
  • 25 plastic spoons
  • 25 quart size resealable food storage bags
  • 25 gallon size resealable food storage bags

  • Ice
  • 5 lbs of salt
  • Ingredients for ice cream (milk, half & half, sugar and vanilla)
The ice will be very cold on the hands. Winter-type gloves are recommended, but not provided. Recommended for grades 5-10 
 
 In 1996 MacNan Biologicals set out on a mission to meld historical facts with scientific exploration focusing on the accomplishments of African American scientists. MacNan Biologicals, located in historic Birmingham, Alabama enlisted experts in the fields of science and education to prepare these kits. The representative scientists selected were chosen for the significant accomplishments they achieved in their particular fields of expertise. It is our hope that the “Focus on African American Scientists Series” will motivate students to seek a greater understanding of science and consider careers on the scientific frontier.  
 
MacNan Biologicals has also partnered with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute to conduct seminars to teach teachers how to bring science alive in the classroom. Please inquire about our workshops and group seminars for professional teacher training. Our professional sales staff is ready to assist you.
