CGIF staff members and volunteers participated in the 2018 USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, DC, April 6 – 8. The Festival was an exciting opportunity for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers, students, and families to visit the CGIF exhibit to learn about ceramic and glass science through fun, interactive demonstrations. Based on estimated numbers, attendance was over 370,000.
Special thanks to the following for volunteering their time to demonstrate the science lessons and inspiring young people to learn more about glass and ceramic science and materials: Carlie Moorehead, Taylor Shoulders, Victoria Blair, James Wollmershauser, Russell Maier, Babak Ashourirad, Yomery Espinal, and Miriam Silton.
