From Cow To Cone, Learn Ice Cream Science At Ag Museum Open House

Ever wonder what goes into making ice cream? The Pasto Agricultural Museum will give you a look into the science behind everyone’s favorite sweet treats at its annual open house and ice cream social from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, April 14.

“The open house coincides with Penn State’s Blue-White game, and we believe it’s a sweet way to end the weekend for kids of all ages,” said Rita Graef, curator of the museum. “It’s always a popular event and great avenue to learn about all our museum has to offer.”

The main event will be “Hey! There’s Science in My Ice Cream,” a telling of how ice cream is made from cow to cone by Ernest Hovingh, a senior research associate in the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences.

Hovingh will be joined by veterinary students and”FEona” the cow — an iron model cow used in training programs to show how calves are born. The group will discuss other cow-related topics, such as cow nutrition for best milk quality and equipment used for milking.

This year’s open house also marks the culmination of the museum’s two spring programs, AgSci Action Labs and AgSci Explorers, which have been being held weekly since March. The young scientists who took part in the sessions will share their experiences during the open house.
