Dry ice isn't ice, but it is ice. It's frozen carbon dioxide. Dry ice sublimates at a rate of 5-10 pounds per day in basic ice box. You can make dry ice from liquid CO(sq.)

You shouldn't just play around with dry ice unless you know a lot about it. You can't just expect to start a project about dry ice right off the bat. It's extremely hard to come by when you're only 10-16 years old.

I hope that I helped!
