Glass: Engineering Material & its Properties
Wow! Who knew this about glass? Like many engineering materials, glass can take on many different properties depending on how it’s made and it’s composition.
Here are two great videos that demonstrate some engineering properties of glass presented by Jamie Hyneman, and Adam Savage… hopefully you will recognize them! guess who’s a sponsor? A local glass company you may have heard of: Corning! If you have not been to their glass museum, a summer trip is definitely in order. Very interactive and fun for all ages.
Be amazed as Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman introduce us to a whole new way of thinking about glass. Learn the history of glass innovation and watch incredible demonstrations of bendable optical fiber and thin, ultra-flexible glass.This is the Glass Age, where materials science is constantly pushing boundaries and creating new possibilities for glass-enabled technology and design. See how glass is shaping the future at www.TheGlassAge.com Presented by Corning.
