Workshop: The Art & Science of Materials (12:40-2:30) BEGINS IN ROOM 234

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

CLOSED: this session has been over booked, unfortunately we cannot accept any more people over 30.
We will begin this session in room 234 (our Chemistry Lab)- ask an ambassador and they will help you find it!
Join art instructor Jenny Montgomery and Chemistry instructor Julie Kancler for a hands-on look inside their Art + Science of Materials class. This year long interdisciplinary curriculum is focused on studying the properties and capacities of manufacturing materials of ceramics, metals, polymers and composites through the lens of Chemistry and Art. In the Chemistry lab, students learn about the chemical and physical properties of these materials, and in the Art studio, students manipulate the materials creatively. Students are introduced to practical and contemporary manufacturing applications of materials and are exposed to related careers in manufacturing, design and advanced manufacturing.

In this workshop you will get to experience a typical lesson as part of a ceramics unit in which you will learn about the properties of glass and create your own fused glass tile. Tiles must be fired in the kiln and will require post workshop pick up or delivery arrangements.
