Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.
During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.
Project:Dry Ice Projects
We want to make cool stuff with dry ice.
This place will do a 10kg delivery for £44 including VAT and Delivery. http://www.eskimo-ice.co.uk/DryIce/ I think the majority of the ideas below need the dry ice in pelleted form, except the frozen bubbles, fog layer and cloud chamber which could use the 1kg blocks. We should ask if we can have a mixed 10kg delivery of 3-4kg blocks and the rest as pellets (which will sublimate faster anyway so we end up with less to dispose of).
Silly Science Tuesday!

- Fizzy Fruit
- Shock Freezing Chocolate. Probably better with liquid nitrogen. Deep-chill/freeze a metal tray then drizzle melted chocolate onto it. The drizzle sets softly so you can pick it up and mould it around things.
