Bright Matter: Intro to Neon Bending (2 weeks | Grades 10-12)

July 11th - July 22nd

Grades 10+11+12

Did you know all neon signs are handmade from glass tubing? Illuminate the summer with a neon masterpiece of your own design! Beginning with an exploration of how noble gases interact with electrical currents to produce light, students will investigate the technical and aesthetic aspects of this unique art form. Working with various torches to weld and bend glass tubes, each student will spend time planning, creating, and lighting their very own glowing sign.

UrbanGlass is excited to offer this class through our partnership with STEM Matters NYC,  with support from the NYC Department of Education (DOE).
