-195,79°C : liquid nitrogen recipies

Pierre, a designer student, has worked in our team to create a series of recipies and Do-It-Yourself activities using liquid nitrogen. Nitrogen becomes liquid at -195,79°C (-320F) allowing to cool down very quickly and easily anything. These recipies are here for you to have fun, to wonder about the physics at play, and also to open new routes for workshops and hands-on activities in museums, schools, associations…

This work is the result of collaboration between the designer Pierre Klein from l’ENSCI-Les Ateliers and the team « Physics Reimagined » (Laboratoire de Physique des Solides, Université Paris-Sud et CNRS). It received the support of the chair “La Physique Autrement” by the Paris-Sud Foundation and supported by the Air Liquide Group. We want to thank Marjorie Garry for helping with the video and advices, and Elizabeth Hong for checking the translations.
