Rose Talks: Drs. Kim and Dave Henthorn

Love chocolate? Join Associate Professors of Chemical Engineering Kim Henthorn (CHE, 1999) and David Henthorn for an online chocolate tasting and discussion of the chemistry and engineering that goes into the production of high-quality chocolate.

If you would like to sample along with the Henthorns during the video, we suggest finding two dark chocolates and two milk chocolates. For each type of chocolate, choose something from a lower price point ($1-$2 per bar, e.g. Hershey’s) and then something in the $3-$4 range. White and ruby chocolate are also sampled at the end.

Rose Talks: Dr. Adam Nolte and Dr. David Chapman

Dr. Adam Nolte is Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Associate Professor. While his talk in this video isn't specific to his department, "The Size of Stuff" brings a big perspective. Dr. Nolte tours you through the staggering range of length scales over which science is done, from the planetary to the atomic, and talks about the tools we use to measure distances when the yardstick just won’t cut it.

Dr. David Chapman, Associate Professor of Music in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts department talks about "Musical Listening as a Time-Travel Game". In the game of musical listening, we actively engage with music instead of passively receiving it. And as with any game, it's more fun if you understand the rules!
