Description

People have been familiar with glass since the Stone Age when they used obsidian (volcanic glass) as a cutting tool. The first glass products for nobility were made in Egypt and Mesopotamia more than 5500 years ago. For a long time glass was a luxury material, but today one can see it everywhere - from the bottles of water to skyscrapers' windows. Despite the fact that glass is very fragile, it is widely used. What then is the success secret of this fragile material? Is it possible to make it more sustainable?

Let's find it out studying history, science, ecology, art, and echnology. 

We will also practice a number of useful competencies: learning beyond the classroom, applied learning, sense of art, ingenuity, and creativity.
