Monday - Campus is in United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) plant hardiness zone 5b. Previously, it was zone 4, a designation that's changed due to climate change and global warming. - Each numbered zone represents a 10-degree difference in the average low temperature. A and b designations delineate five-degree increments. For instance, in zone 5b, average annual extreme minimum temperature is -11.5. In zone 11b, the warmest zone in the contiguous U.S. (Key West, Florida), the lowest average temp is 48.3. - Michigan Tech's gardens bloom earlier than many others in the region because the heat absorbed by the large buildings accelerates the growing season. "You'll definitely see the south sides of buildings spring to life really quick," says Michigan Tech Master Gardener Quincy Higgins Arney. "We also deal with another weird phenomenon here," she says, pointing to a spot in the Rovano Plaza garden. "Sun hitting giant panes of glass creates laser-like beams. At a certain time of day, it's usually 40-50 degrees warmer. And so nothing will grow there. That might be a good place to put a rock." - Geek out at the specimens in our more than 100 garden spaces in Unscripted highlights. #michigantech #campus #gardens #flowers #floweringtrees #spring #welcome back ๐ŸŒž#we missed you @usdagov #plants #hardinesszone

Saturday - Sound on: "I'm printing metal components that are thinner, but stronger. - To do that, I'm exceeding cooling rates of over 10,000 degrees centigrade per second and using custom nozzle geometries to prototype and improve our understanding of the metal 3D printing process.โ€ โ€“ Adam Pringle, Graduate Student, Materials Sciences and Engineering - #3D #metalprinting #3Dprint #mturesearch #michigantech #sustainability #capability #industrial #innovation
