Husky Bites presents Special Guest Walt Milligan

Professor and Chair, Materials Science and Engineering
Michigan Technological University

It’s Halloween, and during Husky Bites, we’re going to learn a few things about knives! If you ever wondered what “tempered” means in a steel product, or have seen videos of people quenching red-hot steel into water or oil and wondered why, Prof. Milligan will explain.. Just how do they make the high performance carbon and stainless steels that are used for kitchen knives? What about all those new, non-stick skillets and pans? There’s a bit of nanotechnology involved. We’ll learn about cast iron and stainless steel, too—what they’re made of, and how they’re made.

Join us early at 5:45 p.m. for conversation and a weather update.
