Glass – More Than Meets the Eye

 

BREAKING POINT – The Way Glass Shatters Matters.

STREET SCIENCE celebrates National Science Week 2022 ‘Glass: More than meets the eye’ with our smashing stage show ‘BREAKING POINT’, touring across Queensland from August.

Glass: it’s been around for centuries and is everywhere in our lives – windows, doors, eyewear, screens; not a day goes by without touching glass… but what exactly is this marvellous material?

In this all-new action-packed show, Street Science will crack open the science of glass, with our presenters exploring common questions about how it’s made and used. Audiences will get CHARGED UP learning lightning’s role, ogle over the optics of glasses and magnification, and have a smashing good time testing the strengths and weakness of the glass types we interact with every single day.

This epic show has been designed and specifically tailored to align with the 2022 National Science Week school’s theme. Your students will gain exciting insights into the chemistry, physics, and sustainability of this valuable resource, complementing curriculum learnings in a way they’ll never forget. Bring this exclusive tour to your school and we will inspire your students, invigorate your teachers, and have everyone in your school community celebrating science!
