Glass – More than meets the eye (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5)
Glass can be made in nature by dramatic events like lightning strikes, volcanic eruptions and meteorite impacts. Join Geoscience Australia and the ACT Education Directorate to find out more.
We are all the beneficiaries of glass – from the vessels that hold our drinks, fiber optics that carry our communications, and the solar panels that convert the sun’s energy into electricity, contributing to a greener future, to name a few. But did you know glass can also be made in nature?
The value of glass has been recognized by the United Nations declaring 2022 to be the International Year of Glass. Subsequently the school student theme for Australia’s National Science Week follows suit.
