Ice Cream Challenge

Science has never been sweeter!

Ice Cream Challenge

Canceled for 2021


Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel our 2nd annual Ice Cream Challenge. We hope you will join us in 2022 as we come together in a day of sweet competition - with a little science thrown in!  Local organizations will form corporate teams and battle for your vote as this year's victor. Their original recipes will be frozen on site with liquid nitrogen for you to sample! Come ready to taste test exciting local flavors and cast your vote for the most delicious treat. 

2022 flavors, competitors and more info to come!
