Join us Thursday, February 25, as Mary Virginia Orna, Professor Emerita of Chemistry, College of New Rochelle, presents "From Sand to Solar Cells: How Glass Changed the World"
Glass is one of the most universally used and most ancient substances known. We take glass for granted, forgetting that to ancient peoples, it was a rare luxury. Although it seems like a simple substance, its chemistry and technology are complex: there is still a bit of Black Magic in its production and makeup. This talk will highlight its history, its chemistry, its technology, and its development as an indispensable substance from antiquity to modern times. — Mary Virginia Orna
