Introducing our new section: Smell the Bluegrass

April 1, 2014 

Chemical Engineer Gary Jacobs let student TJ Slone smell a rose before he put the rose in a tank of -321 degree liquid nitrogen as he gave a demonstration to a group of Russell Cave Elementary students who were touring the UK Center for Applied Energy Research, 2624 Research Park Dr. in Lexington, Ky., Monday, May 20, 2013. The tour was part of an annual event celebrating a partnership, now in its 10th year, between the school and the center. Among other things the students observed aluminum melting at 3,500 degrees, metals being flattened under extreme pressure, and visited a greenhouse to learn how pond scum cleans up pollution.
