Loma Linda, CA (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
Kids at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital received a lesson about the science involved in making ice cream during a demonstration at the hospital on Tuesday, Nov. 13. Ryan and Cassandra Berk, husband and wife owners of A la Minute Creamery in Redlands, staged the demonstration using liquid nitrogen to accelerate the ice cream making process. The Wells Fargo “Out of the Box” grant, given to the hospital for use in unique educational experiences for children who miss school due to being hospitalized, funded the presentation. The hospital school program is a joint venture between San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, Redlands Unified School District, and Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital.
