S4551: Applications of NMR to Biochemistry in Spark! 2011 (Mar. 12, 2011)
Biochemists study proteins and other macromolecules on very small scales. How do they do this? With a very powerful technique called nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), we can watch the movements of the proteins, and learn a lot about their dynamics and structure! Although class will focus mainly on the applications of NMR, we'll talk about the physics a little as well.

X4685: The History and Science of Ice Cream in Spark! 2011 (Mar. 12, 2011)
We've all seen ice cream scooped into a wafer cone (even when the cones aren't cones). But have you ever thought about how this delicious treat became such a commonplace part of our culture? Come get some theoretical and practical experience in this specialized branch of the field of dessertology!

W4355: Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream! in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
Ice cream is delicious, but unfortunately it takes an awfully long time to make. Fortunately, liquid nitrogen can expedite the process! Liquid nitrogen is a lot like the nitrogen that makes up about 78% of air, except much colder--nitrogen boils at 77 K, or -196 degrees Celsius! We'll start by making some classics like vanilla and chocolate, then move on to more adventurous flavor combinations.
