Event Description

Glass is an amazing material with an endless list of properties- no wonder we use it everyday! Glass is everywhere, from the kitchen to the living room, to your car and to your smartphone. Glass is not only hard to live without, it’s also incredibly sustainable.

Explore in groups how light behaves with glass, lenses and scientific equipment and in turn understand the properties of glass.

Students will learn how glass is made and make their own sustainable, biodegradable glasslike structure to take home.

Fun demonstrations on how solar panels and fibre optics work.

Experience naturally formed glass via lightning.
