The Science Behind Glass

Glass is all around us: We can see it almost everywhere we go, whether we’re looking through the window of our bedroom or having a drink of water or milk with our dinner. Glass is hard, but it can break easily. Glass is also usually clear, but sometimes, it can be colored to make works of art. It’s one of the most useful materials people have ever invented, showing up everywhere from eyeglasses to phone lines to light bulbs.

Here’s a wonderful page of articles, videos, resources and hands-on experiments which can be used as a unit study about glass and the science behind it. Highly recommended.

Many thanks to Jess R. for letting us know about this great resource!
